Lockdown learning can be really difficult if your parents don’t speak the language, or if they are burdened with other issues. A lack of resources, such as computer devices, wifi and artistic materials, can also be a barrier to success. It is also important to be mindful that isolation can be felt more acutely by those without other support networks such as family around them, and for those who have had to leave their homes and settle somewhere new.
We appreciate how difficult it is to teach and study during the lockdown. Though we are hopeful that the pandemic will end, distanced learning is likely to continue for there foreseeable future. As such we are keen to share resources and celebrate best practice during this time.
If you have anything to share please get in touch.
