New online learning package launched

The Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson, has unveiled new measures to ensure vulnerable and disadvantaged young people can continue to access vital education resources from their homes during the Covid-19 lockdown. 

The Government will provide laptops and tablets to children with a social worker and disadvantaged young people who are taking exams next year, so they can continue to access essential services and resources. 4G routers will also be provided to disadvantaged secondary school pupils and care leavers, so that they can get online and continue their studies.

In addition, the Oak National Academy has launched to provide 180 video lessons each week, across a broad range of subjects from maths to art to languages, for every year group from Reception through to Year 10. I've taken a look at the material available from the Oak National Academy and it really excellent. I recommend that if you are a parent with school children at home that you take a look to see what resources are available to help you.
