Remote Support for Learners

Children and parents may need additional support in these difficult times. This page is not exhaustive but if you have a specific question please message Mrs Lavis on the school email: office@castlecaryschool.org.uk  


General Support

We know that children benefit from good routines, some of these pages will help with ideas for parents. Some children benefit from using a visual timetable rather than just words. Children also benefit from regular breaks, remember a lot of learning can come from playing  a game, baking, music and singing, putting on a  play using toys or creating a short movie using a tablet.
