Blended and Remote/Distance Learning
All schools are working in challenging and changing times as a result of COVID-19.
Schools need to plan for the continuity of learning for all learners, whatever their circumstance and whether in school or at home.
There is no one size fits all strategy and there are a wide range of considerations for schools in planning for the continuity of learning for all learners. Approaches must be suitable to the context of the school and have due regard for the Welsh Government expectations and priorities.
