General resources
Schools have closed. We’re here to help.

Due to the recent closure of schools across the UK, we’ve been contacted by a large number of parents looking to make sure their children stay on track with their learning.

Schools are doing as much as they can to provide content and, where possible, lessons via live streaming.

However, this is a difficult job, so to help out we have compiled a list of fantastic resources that are easily accessible via Amazon, and are packed full of engaging content for children to keep learning whilst at home. See the list below.

Also see the Statutory Framework (Early Years) and National Curriculum (Primary) guidelines so you can stay informed about the curriculum.
