At Adoption UK, we have drawn on the expertise of staff members and others who are experienced home educators to create a growing bank of resources and tips to support families with home learning.  

On our website, you can find a page of resources for learning and wellbeing here: www.adoptionuk.org/education-learning-resources and we will regularly share resources and ideas across our social media channels. 

In our forum, we have started two dedicated threads. The first, ‘Resources and Ideas for Families at Home During Covid-19' is for sharing resources and links: https://www.linkmaker.co.uk/forums/topic/99134 

The second, ‘Ask a Teacher’ is for crowd sourcing answers to questions that may come up while you are navigating work that has been for your child by their school: https://www.linkmaker.co.uk/forums/topic/99136 

We will also be posting regular mini vlogs by our Education Policy Advisor, Becky Brooks (former teacher, home educator, home worker and adoptive parent), and others to support you as you navigate these challenging and uncertain times. Find these on YouTube and shared across our social media channels.
