From Monday 11th January, CBBC channel will feature three-hours of primary school shows to ensure that all kids can watch programming if they don’t have the internet.

BBC Two will focus for secondary school content to help students learning the GCSE curriculum. There will be two hours of lessons broadcast on television per day. All of this will sit alongside the existing BBC Bitesize content, which will be available on the Red Button.

Similar to the first lockdown last year, Bitesize Daily shows will be accompanied with special archive broadcasts of factual, drama that reflects the curriculum. Programmes begin 9am with BBC Live Lessons and Bitesize Daily. All episodes will be on iPlayer.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said: “The BBC has helped the nation through some of the toughest moments of the last century, and for the next few weeks it will help our children learn whilst we stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.”
