This is our 'Home Learning Guidelines' document, with pupil, parent and staff expectations for online learning:
Starline has been set up to provide support for parents and carers who have concerns or queries about educating their children at home.
Starline will help parents and carers in the following ways:
By providing access to a team of qualified teachers, education and parenting experts.
By focussing on providing practical ideas, support and reassurance.
By offering tips, techniques and resources to enable parents to give their children the support they need to continue learning while schools are closed.
By supporting family wellbeing and mental health.
By covering all phases of education and subjects plus behaviour, pupil wellbeing and SEND.
