I like to look on the bright side of life, but even I’ll admit that 2021 feels like it’s being directed by Quentin Tarantino. We’ve seen an attempted coup across the pond, alarming COVID-19 statistics over here, and most notably for school leaders - an announcement to partially close all schools with less than 12 hours notice.
Of course, school leaders took the announcement in their stride - which is admirable, given that they probably still have whiplash from the many other sharp government U-turns over the past year. Nonetheless, they’ve still been expected to pick up where they left off and deliver quality remote provision, and at a moment's warning. If this rings true for you, take a look at this advice from our colleagues over at The Key, and their practical examples from the school leaders within their network.
