Support for Home Learning



Home learning during the current national lockdown is being delivered via Google classroom. Further information and guidance can be found on your child's class page under the GOOGLE CLASSROOM icon. A summary of expectations for daily home learning, curriculum areas and timings, can be found on your child's class page under the LOCKDOWN HOME LEARNING icon.


In response to the unprecedented closure of schools to most pupils, the EEF has produced a set of resources for parents to support effective home learning. These are all based on the evidence- based recommendations in the EEF's guidance reports.

These resources outline straightforward ways in which you can identify learning opportunities in everyday routines and build them into your home life. There is also guidance for supporting your child's behavioural, emotional and social needs at this time.

Supporting your child during remote education

Parents and carers should not feel that they need to set work for their child.

However, the resources below can help you plan your child’s days during this period. These resources may also be useful for pupils and students to use alongside the work provided by their school or college.

If you need further support, we encourage you to speak to your child’s school or college about their remote education offer.
