Following the Government’s lockdown announcement, we know most of you will be engaged in providing remote and/or in-school learning for pupils.

For many of you, this will be nothing new – online learning, to a larger or smaller extent, has been a new feature of this pandemic.

With schools being closed to the majority of children, remote learning will be a reality, for the next six weeks at least.

The National Education Union (NEU) supports teachers in their professional role of delivering education to pupils in all circumstances.

We have developed our guidance on remote learning from last spring, adapted with the changes that have come over the last nine months.

Our updated guidance on blended learning, remote teaching and issues around live-streaming lessons can be found here.

Here, you will find our overarching principles for blended and remote learning as well as links to useful resources and fuller information for primary, secondary and special education professionals.

There are examples of blended and remote learning approaches from members, as well as articles designed to inspire and aid your practice. We will add to these resources and continue to develop our guidance as the situation evolves.

You all continue to play such an important role in our society, and your union really appreciates you and will do everything we can to support your efforts.
