Further guidance on school closures
The government has issued further guidance on school closures:
Much of this information has already been shared with you, however I would like to highlight some useful pieces of information:
7.1 What support is available to parents to help them educate their children at home?
For support you should first contact your child’s educational setting, who will be able to offer advice.
We want to support parents and all educational settings to ensure children and young people’s education can continue. Available support includes:
a list of online educational resources which have been identified by some of the country’s leading educational experts to help pupils to learn at home
the BBC is enhancing its education provision to include daily lessons starting from 20 April 2020
7.3 Where can I go to get support to help keep my child safe online?
There is support available to keep your child safe online. Below are some useful links to help parents and carers:
Thinkyouknow (advice from the National Crime Agency to stay safe online)
Internet matters (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
Parent info (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
LGfL (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
Net-aware (support for parents and carers from the NSPCC)
Let’s Talk About It (support for parents and carers to keep children safe from online radicalisation)
UK Safer Internet Centre (tips, advice, guides)
Our school website will be updated on Tuesday 14th April with the latest learning resources for each class. Go to your child's class page for more information.
Please don't hesitate to contact your teacher if you require any advice or support. I hope you are all staying safe and that you have a restful Easter weekend.
