Schools may need to close early two days a week.

Schools in England and Wales are considering closing early two days a week because they cannot afford enough teachers to cover the timetable, a union has said.

The warning came at the annual conference of the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), where the education secretary, Justine Greening, was heckled by teachers over plans for more grammar schools.

Cries of “no!” echoed around Birmingham’s ICC when Greening claimed that “we have to recognise actually that for grammars, in terms of the disadvantaged children that they have, they really do help them to close the attainment gap”
