Do schools need to provide educational support for pupils at home?

The Department for Education, in their update on the 7th April 2020, recognises that many schools have already shared resources for children who are at home and are grateful for this. They want to support parents and schools to ensure young people’s education can continue. Support available includes:

  • a list of online resources have been identified by some of the country’s leading educational experts to help pupils to learn at home. The link to these resources can be found below
  • the BBC enhancing its education provision to include daily lessons, starting from Monday 20th April 2020


Staff at Southfield Primary School will continue to regularly add age-appropriate work to the Google Drive, and can be contacted by email if parents have any questions about the work set.
