Returning to school after lockdown

Advice for parents and carers

While we are not clear about when the restriction on our movements will change, we understand that schools are likely to open sooner than many other restrictions are lifted. 

The last few weeks have been unlike no other period of time in our lives to date. Our children and the young people we live with may have adapted better to this change, others will have found the restriction to their lives much more challenging.

What we know about change is that it is managed better if we prepare for it.  With this is mind, we have been thinking about conversations you could have with your children about returning to school.
