Families have had to adapt in many ways because of the restrictions in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
These restrictions will change over time, but are likely to remain with us in some form for a while. Families have been at home for some time and every family will be managing their own circumstances differently to meet their needs.
During this time your top priority has to be your family’s safety and well-being. You may want to support your children’s learning and the ways you are able to do this may depend on your family situation. Parents and carers are using many great and imaginative ways to help balance priorities of working, caring, supporting learning and general family life, on a daily basis.
The advice and information on these pages is for parents and carers of children and young people aged 3 to 18 years old. It has been guided by what parents, carers, teachers and others involved in education are saying is helpful to families to Keep Wales Learning while restrictions continue.
For simplicity the term ‘school’ has been used throughout but should be taken to mean the setting that applies to your children, whether that be a nursery, school, pupil referral unit (PRU), college or any other setting.
It is important to keep up to date with the latest Welsh Government guidance on what you must do to prevent the spread of coronavirus and Keep Wales Safe.
This section is changing frequently. We will continue to update it with information and resources as they become available.
