The COVID-19 pandemic poses serious challenges for families and schools. This is a confusing and scary time for children and adults alike. Teachers and other education staff are working hard to support families through this crisis. The National Education Union – which represents almost half a million school staff in England and Wales – wants to help you as parents and carers with children learning at home.

Learning remotely

Many parents are juggling different priorities, including work and caring responsibilities, alongside home schooling. But these are not normal times and parents/carers should not feel under pressure to replicate the classroom at home. On this site you will find lots to support you: clarification on expectations around remote education, advice on key issues you may be concerned about and some fun and educational activities to do with your children.
