Virtual School educational resources during COVID-19 (coronavirus)

Dear parents/carers,

With some children now needing to self-isolate at home, various organisations in education, health and care have been pooling resources together in order to provide helpful ideas for home-based activities, including mental and emotional well-being for all the family.

Our colleagues from Herefordshire Virtual School have drawn up a range of on-line learning tools. Most are for primary-aged pupils, but some are suitable for secondary pupils too.

Your first point of contact for education resources and enquiries should still be the young person’s school. However, we hope that these might also be useful for you and for your young people.

Kind regards,

Coventry Virtual School
