The lists, compiled by academics in the IOE’s London Centre for Leadership in Learning (LCLL) and the Centre for Inclusive Education (CIE), feature resources for primary and secondary school pupils. They also contain videos and websites for adults to help them talk to children about the coronavirus and learning resources about the virus for pupils.

All these resources are either free, or they have been made free during the period of school closures.
