(Updated - 21st May 2020)
Click on the following link to view an update from the Department for Education (DfE), posted on GOV.UK on Thursday 21st May, that gives guidance on helping primary school aged children learn at home, including information on the wider opening of educational settings:
On 20th April the DfE launched two learning platforms to support children’s homeschooling (BBC Bitesize and Oak Academy). Both are recommended by the Government and we therefore encourage you to use them. Click the links below to access them. For more details on each site, please click this download link to a letter from Mr Woodhouse.

Coronavirus and schools closure information for parents / carers
Following the Government’s announcement, East Riding of Yorkshire Council would like to reiterate that schools, colleges and childcare providers will be closed for the vast majority of children until further notice.
Many parents working in critical sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. Every child who can be safely cared for at home, should be.
We have been made aware of a couple of threats that are useful to know about.
Zoom Bombing - During the lockdown period, many people, including groups involving children have started to use Zoom - a video conferencing site which allows users to message, chat, live stream etc. The following link explains 'Zoom Bombing', where unfamiliar users can leave themselves vulnerable to unwanted contributions from uninvited people. It also gives some advice on improving safety for those people using Zoom.
Fake Covid-19 Map - Humberside Police Cyber Security Unit have shared some information regarding a fake Covid-19 map on a malicious website. The map is likely to be shared via email attachments and online advertisements. Opening it could lead to a Trojan type virus infecting your device and stealing personal information.
Information for working from home with children - Below are links to a range of resources and information for parents working from home with their children. They have been produced by Thinkuknow - an education programme from NCA-CEOP, a UK organisation which protects children both online and offline.
