Here we’ve put together some recommended links and resources to help parents with home-schooling during the Covid-19 school closures. We’ll be adding more as we go.

Useful Links for Home Schooling

TheSchoolRun is a parenting and education website for primary school parents. We offer information, advice and practical activities to help you support your child’s learning and we aim to ‘demystify’ school so you understand what and how your child is being taught from the ages of 4 to 11.

BBC Bitesize

From 20 April, you’ll be able to access regular daily lessons in English and Maths, as well as other core subjects, in an expanded version of the BBC Bitesize website and also on special programmes broadcast on BBC iPlayer and BBC Red Button.

BBC iPlayer and the Red Button service will host Bitesize Daily. These are six different 20 minute shows, each designed to target a specific age group, from ages five to 14
