Latest information on returning to school
Please visit your class page to access lockdown learning.
Following the Government’s announcement (4.1.21) we are closed except to those Key Workers that have been allocated a place.
At the end of the first lockdown a range of resources were produced by services across the local authority and NHS to support children and young people’s health and well-being as they returned to school. This included documents for parents and carers. These are all still available on the learn Sheffield website by clicking on the following link and then the ‘Emotional Health and Well-being’ tab. These documents also include guidance and support on Emotionally Based School Avoidance (EBSA) and on supporting mental health needs that have developed during lockdown

New Psychological First Aid training for supporting children and young people affected by emergencies and crisis situations including the COVID-19 pandemic
PHE launched a new psychological first aid (PFA) online training course to help support children and young people that have been affected by emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic. It is available for all frontline workers such as teachers, health and social workers, charity and community volunteers and anyone who cares for or is regularly in contact with children and young people aged up to 25, including parents and caregivers. Those completing the training will be equipped to better identify those children that are in distress and provide support to help them feel safe, connected and able to take steps to help themselves during the pandemic or other crisis situations. The course is free, takes up to three hours to complete (that the learner can complete at their own pace) and no previous qualifications are required. PFA is a globally recognised training programme for emergency situations and PHE has developed this new course with input and advice from a range of experts, government and charitable organisations via an advisory group which includes NHS England, the Department for Education, British Red Cross and in partnership with FutureLearn.

As we celebrate the love of reading and all things literacy this week with World Book Day on the 4th March, Stephen Fry has created a special video to share a quick and simple tip that could help improve children’s reading skills and help make TV more of a learning experience.
Extensive research shows that turning on the subtitles while children are watching television can double the chances of them becoming good at reading. Please check out the video by clicking: https://youtu.be/I-zISnJ-oao
