Hayley Alldridge, head of marketing and brand for Marches Academy Trust, said: "One of the things we've been focusing on is staying in touch and staying connected with our students.

"The teachers at Shrewsbury Academy wanted to make sure the students felt connected during this time. It's a worrying time for children. It's difficult for them when they can't see their friends.

"For some of the children they might be at home with lots of siblings and parents trying to work.

"They are still learning. We have lots of online resources available and the teachers are sending videos. We're trying to make sure we maintain a subject calendar."
