Response to the Coronavirus Outbreak

As the coronavirus continues to spread worldwide we wanted to reassure our schools that access to your Discovery Education services will continue as normal. If your school is closed or a pupil needs to work from home for any reason, our services offer a wealth of flexible resources that can be adapted to many learning scenarios.

Pupil Home Access is available as part of your Discovery Education subscription. If you do not have this activated on your account please contact School Support.
