We will be using this page to share resources and ideas for supporting your child at home with their learning. We appreciate that your circumstances differ and some people may be able to dedicate more time than others. Please do not take the below as an expectation of what you should be doing; it is there to support and to be used flexibly.
We will continue to add activities for you to help with your child's learning at home. Also, the government are currently working with the BBC to provide some resources for families as well. As soon as we hear more about this, we will let you know.
In these times, it is particularly important that we are mindful of our own, and others', mental health and wellbeing. Below is a list of links to resources and guidance for supporting families during this period.
