DFE (Department for Education)
The DFE have updated the guidance for parents to support their children’s remote education to provide more information for parents and carers as they support their children at home. They have added top tips for supporting children during remote education, including links to information about the Reading Well booklist that supports mental health. They have also provided information on how to access online resources and services through your local library and online support for parents and carers to keep children and young people safe from online harm. Please also see Education and Childcare guidance.
York Family Learning Survey - Calling all parents and carers!
We’re running a survey to ask how you’ve been doing in these strange times ….what’s worked and what have been the challenges? What you have to say now is more important than ever in this third lockdown stage. We’ll be sharing survival tips and individual shout outs on our Family Learning York Facebook page as well as passing general findings to schools and pre-school settings so that we can all improve our support for you. If you have pre school or primary school age children in the York area, please give us 5-10 minutes of your time to complete this survey. We are having prize draws each half term to win special packs of books – so the sooner you do it, the more chances you have to win! Thank you from Fiona and the Family Learning Team.
