We have compiled a list of the websites that offer learning resources, ideas, activities, lessons and more, for you to encourage your pupils and parents to use to support temporary home learning during this period of school closures. The list can be downloaded on this page. It is a non-exhaustible list, and more extensive directories can be found online below and attached.

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-online-education-resources a DfE list of online educational resources to help children to learn at home.
Some websites may require you to create a username and password to access the materials. Additionally, on some of these sites you may need to search in the ‘teacher’ or ‘educator’ areas to find the best materials.
Note that it is important that parents check the suitability and safety of the resources listed themselves first. The local authority does not endorse any of the services of these providers.
The local authority advises that parents should only access online learning at this time rather than face-to-face tutoring to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Schools are advised to remind children and parents to follow simple online safety rules – see attached.
