Blended learning

The Coronavirus (COVID-19): strategic framework for reopening schools, early learning and childcare provision sets out clearly the factors to be considered in the provision of blended learning for all children and young people and the Coronavirus (COVID-19): reopening schools guide provides helpful guidance to support these considerations. Decisions relating to delivery will be taken locally, in light of local needs and circumstances. 

This guidance considers how children and young people will be offered blended learning approaches, seeking to address the attainment gap and to support the most vulnerable learners such as those with additional support needs, care experienced children and young people, and others identified as being at risk. Dialogue and relationships with parents and carers will be crucial.  

In these considerations, and recognising the continued focus on literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing in curriculum for excellence, thought should be given to supporting teachers and support workers and early years staff to ensure that they have an appropriate skill set for those children and young people being targeted in order to enhance the accessibility of the blended learning offer to them.
