When all the schools in the UK were closed for many months last year (and also this year!), my dgd was still attending because her mum is a key worker - working in health care. My dgd was only 5, so was brought to school by taxi - the driver was a lovely guy (prior to his retirement he had been one of the soldiers guarding the Queen!) and they had a sweet relationship - he called her the princess. The headteacher took her from taxi to classroom - she really was treated pretty well!
