The Summer School Series by Lexplore Analytics!
This Summer Term, teachers across the country have worked harder than ever before trying to maintain a high level of teaching in the face of school closures and the COVID-19 pandemic! As the end of this challenging term approaches, many teachers, parents and children alike will be looking forward to a well-deserved rest over the holidays.
However, this years’ summer break also presents a new challenge for those in education! Many will begin to look at the impact that lockdown has had children’s learning and wellbeing, consider what challenges might present when pupils return to the classroom and begin to plan school responses.
To help teachers and parents prepare for September we have put together a fantastic FREE Q and A webinar, which will explore strategies to help children and teachers reconnect and adjust to their new normal.
With experts in the fields of SEND, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Assistive Technology and EAL Learning, this discussion will be a fantastic opportunity for parents and teachers to ask any education-related questions before children and teachers return to the classroom.
