HOME LEARNING

While staying at home due to coronavirus (COVID-19), parents and carers will be concerned about their children’s education and the impact of missing school.

No one expects parents to act as teachers, or to provide the activities and feedback that a school would. Parents and carers should do their best to help children and support their learning. Please use the links below to find helpful information and resources to help you during this difficult time.

CORONAVIRUS ADVICE FOR CHILDREN

GO PLAY WELCOME

The Council has developed a website for families, local residents and
business detailing the latest support and advice we are able to offer.

COUNCIL UPDATES ON CORONAVIRUS

As more and more people are self-isolating there is a danger that the
most vulnerable on pre-payment meters will suffer fuel debt due to the
inability to top up. With more staying at home (including an increased
number of children), energy use will rise at a time when income may
drop and health could be compromised. The Government has
announced measures to help people affected. Details can be found at:

SUPPORT FOR VULNERABLE PEOPLPE

The Council is in partnership with Agility Eco who administer the LEAP
(Local Energy Advice Partnership) scheme. Available to all tenures, the
partnership is aimed at reducing fuel poverty and, apart from providing
basic energy advice, it delivers other services such as benefit
maximisation. Details via the Council’s website at:
