Twinkl is sending out codes to schools, teachers and parents across the world as well as sharing information on social media to provide free access. Teachers, parents and carers in the UK can access Twinkl by visiting www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code CVDTWINKLHELPS alongside an email and password. Access will initially be granted for one month, but Twinkl plans to extend this.

Jonathan Seaton, co-Founder and CEO of Twinkl, said: “After hearing about the necessary precautions that are being taken at schools because of the coronavirus, we recognised that our digital resources could help teachers, parents and children who may be unable to attend school.

“Our mission has and always will be to help those who teach and we know that we need to do this right now more than ever. The things schools, teachers, parents and carers are doing to help their children is incredible and we hope this will go some way towards supporting them. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the coronavirus.”
