The DfE have asked us to alert parents to research that they are undertaking in connection with the impact of remote teaching and learning during this period of school closures, in order to understand the education challenges created by coronavirus. This research will make clear the challenges schools, teachers, families and young people are facing and be used to quickly inform the right government advice to ensure learning can continue.
The Department is keen to speak urgently with head teachers, class teachers, early years professionals, and parents of nursery/school-age children. Several upcoming research sessions are planned over the next few weeks, with the first slots of research beginning on Tuesday 5th May 2020. The session will last for approximately 45 minutes and will be led by a Department for Education user researcher.
