As there are more decisions being made over the opening of schools as lockdown is easing, we understand that there may be some of your children experiencing levels of anxiety or worries about returning to school after such a long time and also still trying to understand the pandemic which has swept our nation.
Mr Reay has compiled a list of useful video and website links which you can access with your child to support them with understanding social distancing and preparing to come back to school.
There are also attached documents published on this page from helpful posters to useful booklets to complete together as a family.
