Supporting your children's education during coronavirus (COVID-19)
While staying at home due to coronavirus, parents and carers may be worried about their children’s development and the effect of missing school or nursery.
No one expects parents to act as teachers, or to provide the activities and feedback that a school or nursery would. Parents and carers should do their best to help children and support their learning while dealing with other demands.
Get specific advice on how education can continue at home for children:
- aged 2 to 4
- at primary school
- at secondary school
- with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)
Alongside any work your children receive from school, you can try using online educational resources covering various subjects and age groups.
Have regular conversations about staying safe online and tell your child to speak to you if they come across something worrying online.
Mental health and wellbeing
The change of routine and staying at home may make this a difficult time for some children. Public Health England has published advice on how to support your children’s wellbeing during the coronavirus outbreak.
Guidance is also available to help you look after your own mental health.
