    • tailored CPD for all staff  
    • free online courses 
    • face-to-face and remote courses with a bursary of £220 for completing a course*

Remote/home learning: 

Recently, we have had a lot of questions from schools about preparing for home/remote learning. If you have no email accounts set up for your children, then you can access the free DfE funding to get Google Classroom or Teams set up. https://schoolleaders.thekeysupport.com/news/digital-education-platform-scheme/   If you would like to ask any questions on which of these platforms to choose and the differences between them, then please feel free to get in touch.  Another great option for primary schools is using Seesaw. Seesaw is an online journal platform which is free to use and requires minimal setup.  

Please contact us for support about Remote Learning.
