The COVID-19 virus has meant that we have all had to make changes to the way we live our lives. The most important thing is to help everyone in your household to stay safe and look after the health and well-being of all those you live with. Follow the latest guidance on the Welsh Government website.
Secondly you can support your children to stay learning. As a parent/carer you are not being asked to take on the role of teacher or to deliver the school day in your own home. Children will need different support depending on many things, including age and learning needs. You and your children’s teachers know your children best.
Please remember that your children are learning all the time and being in school is just part of that. There may be days when you are working and when you have other people to care for. There may be days when you or your children are tired, someone is ill or when it just isn’t possible to help your children with their learning. This is fine. During these difficult times it is important to try to keep some structure and routine to your days.
Try following these steps.
