Resources and Advice for Supporting Home Learning

Last Updated: 30th March 2020

Supporting learning can be a daunting prospect but it can also be creative, fun and bring families closer. It is important to remain relaxed and understand that it will take time for many children to adjust to learning at home and those with SEND may require extra time and support. It is key to remember that the government guidance on Coronavirus must be followed so that we can return to normal life as quickly and safely as possible. The purpose of this page is to gather resources, information and guidance to help aid with supporting your child's learning at home.
