Guidance for students working from home.

As the students work from home for this period of time, they may receive work from school to complete. We would suggest in order to complete this well that your children work closely to the normal school’s timings and plan in short breaks from their work as they would have in school. An overview of suggested timings is shown in the table below.

If possible we would recommend completing the work in the same order as the lessons of that day. This will prevent the students completing their favourite subjects work first, and then leaving their least favourite for the end of the day when they may not complete their best work.

Well-being of Students:

During this time away from school and friends we understand that some people may be worried about the well being of their children. There are a number of on-line ideas to keep active which aids with both physical and mental health. Keep an eye on our social media for ideas too. Check out Common Sense Media's hub for families and educators for ideas for online and digital entertainment. And keep checking our social media for more and for active/ screen free ideas.

It is also very important that the health of your children continue to be monitored and if there are any changes in your child’s health that you seek medical advice. To help maintain their health they need to follow national health guidelines that can found on the BBC news homepage. Advice can also be found on the NHS homepage.
 
Keep Safe.

Coronavirus update for YST services

At Gloucestershire Youth Support Team (YST) our priority is the safety and well being of the young people we work with and the staff that work so hard to support them. So for the foreseeable future, the YST will be delivered online and over the phone rather than in person.

All group work and events have been postponed until further notice, but we aim to keep in touch via social media and here. You can still contact us at info.glos@prospects.co.uk.

We will continue a skeleton service for those who are considered at high risk and do what we can to ease the burden and risks of social distancing and social isolation. We know these are difficult times, keep safe.
