VSH Update

How can we help you during
this difficult time?

July 2020 Issue 58

With the continuing disruption to schools and other educational settings, we are keen to assist Virtual Schools in ensuring appropriate provision for their children. In these unprecedented times, we believe that we have the experience and flexible solutions to help. We look forward to hearing from you and contributing to your efforts.

Mobile learning for primary and secondary

With so many children still studying at home, we are receiving reports from Virtual School Heads of limited opportunities and pressures building on care placements. Our mobile learning resources for children (Key Stage 1–4) can help you to successfully supplement learning and provide constructive activity for children at home. If you feel that these resources could benefit you, please let us know, and we will work with you to put together an appropriate package.

MyLibrary (curriculum resources for key stages 1 to 4)
MyLife (PSHE, life skills and citizenship courses)

How else can we help you?

We have more than ten years' experience of working with Virtual Schools and have been involved in projects with over 100 local authorities. Most of the initiatives we have launched over this period have been in direct response to the ideas and requests of you and your peers. Feel free to suggest how else we might be able to help, both now in these difficult times and in the future when normality has been restored.

Please tell us if you want to discuss your particular requirements, build a bespoke programme or find out more.
