COVID-19 school closure – resource bank

To support parents and teachers to inspire, educate and entertain young people during school closure we have collected a bank of the top learning at home educational resource sites. These have been developed by a range of educational organisations specifically in response to school closure during the COVID-19 pandemic.

These can be used by teachers or parents looking for tools to inspire and educate young people during lockdown. You can access our full library of teaching resources, from over 250 publishers, which can be filtered by age, curriculum subject, global learning topic, or publisher, here.

Additionally, during school closure, we are tailoring our educational e-newsletter, ‘The Globe’, to support parents and teachers with a structure of upcoming global days and celebrations and related fun, educational resources and projects. You can sign up to receive this newsletter here.


Top learning at home resources:

CAFOD: These resources are aimed at supporting children and young people at home or in small groups still in school. There are separate resource packs for primary and secondary. These resources have a Christian focus.

Save the Children: Creative play during lockdown – this web page contains creative ideas for literacy and creativity, aimed at early years.

Transform Our World: Learning from Home Resources – These resources cover coral reefs, clean air, sustainable development and food packaging, and typically involve following a PowerPoint presentation alongside other downloadable resources.

Young Scots: Corona Virus Microsite – Provides young people with clear explanations of the Corona Virus pandemic, tips to prevent themselves and others catching COVID-19, advice to reduce anxiety and information on how young people can safely and effectively support their community at this time.

BBC Bitesize: daily lessons – Beginning Monday 20 April, BBC Bitesize will publish daily online lessons for all ages. They will also have a new dedicated TV channel full of learning content, podcasts on BBC Sounds and loads of educational video on iPlayer.

This interactive HealthMap shows real-time occurrence of infections and diseases around the world and can be used to track the spread of COVID-19 on a global scale. You can also use these graphs and statistics reporting in real time on virus cases around the globe.

Thank you parents and teachers for your vital work educating and inspiring young people during school closure.
