While schools, retail, outdoor parks, faith buildings are slowly reopening their doors (and gates) to socially-distanced individuals the landscape for community-led children’s activities continues to be remote. But you are needed, your support for children, young people and families over the last three months has been amazing. Children need community-led learning as much as ever, for the same reasons: to build self-confidence, to deepen knowledge of mother-tongue and heritage languages, to reach their true potential, to know who they are and that they can achieve as they are. We have seen much innovation in remote and online teaching and learning and will continue to facilitate your sharing of best practice and ideas.
In this 2-part webinar we look at how community-led supplementary schools can engage with their pupils remotely.
