Home Schooling Resources

We wanted to support Parents and Carers who are now educating at home and looking to bring some structure and routine to week days.

There is no one size fits all solution/template – for example we are finding that sticking to the usual school day timetable is working best for reducing anxieties here at IT Matters HQ.

Obviously some changes are needed – PE has become 5-a-day , Forest School is a walk in the local woods followed by a hot chocolate, and Enrichment a Mum and daughter pamper session!
