Books to read with children

We hope that you are all keeping safe and well and we miss seeing all of our amazing children every day.  Some of them (like some of us) may be worrying about the virus and we have been was made aware of this lovely picture e-book - Everybody Worries - to support children with this.  We hope you find it useful. 

These books might also be useful to read with children about returning to school and hope for the future.

A social story and guidelines for parents

We know that many of you with children returning to school will be worried about this and we want to reassure you that we have been, and will continue to, make school as safe as possible for all of them. In order to support the children with the changes to school due to social distancing measures, we have produced the attached social story and some guidelines on how to use this. I would recommend reading this story once a day with your child/children between now and the day they are due to return. In order to be effective, social stories need to be read daily over a sustained period of time.
