Back to School and COVID-19 Information Centre

You may also want to take a look at our Back-to-School and Covid-19 Information Centre where you’ll find our Tools for Teachers Covid-19 edition booklet and a wealth of supporting materials from our partners across England, including two detailed case studies with practical planning tools, an impact assessment and sensory profiles. 

All of our Covid-19 content is free to access and download. Our popular Tools for Teachers resource normally cost £40 for individuals and £150 for organisations but, in response to the circumstances, we have created a complementary collection of 6 tools which we think you will find most helpful in the current situation.

 

 

Learning from Lockdown 

In February 2021, we got in touch with the AET community to ask a series of questions. Now you can find out what parents and teachers had to say about their lockdown experiences. Discover lessons learnt, how it impacted their daily lives and what tips they would give to someone in their position. 

You could also watch our series of Parent Interviews – Learning in Lockdown.
