The outbreak of Coronavirus is affecting some schools in England and there’s now the real possibility of school closures. Many colleagues are planning for this eventuality right now. The Department for Education have a helpline for schools and that is open from 8:00am to 6:00pm weekdays, the number is 0800 046 8687 and you can also email DfE.firstname.lastname@example.org
Public Health England have also provided this advice for schools in a printable poster
With the outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19) now affecting some Education Establishments, we’d like to do what we can to help. Russell has put together a FREE service that could help you deliver some of your learning. Using our Broadcasting Platform, we’ll give you access to our Internet Radio Channel to carry a LIVE Radio programme broadcast from your location to your Pupils. You could be at home on Skype or a Landline or Mobile and we’ll do all the technical stuff to put you onto a Live Stream. He’ll provide all of the show hosting to make you sound great. We recommend that you use Blogging, Google Classrooms or Microsoft Teams as a web-based collaboration tool to run alongside the radio broadcast. Listeners join-in by simply listening to Anderton Tiger Radio through any of our APPS, Website Players or Tune-in Radio. There is absolutely no charge for this, please contact our office for details and to book your one-hour slot.
We will endeavour to provide this service for the duration of School Closures in England and Wales and of course it is subject to availability.
