SEND Remote Learning

Supporting learners with SEND to access remote learning at home


Please find below a range of resources, top tips, strategies and guidance on supporting your child at home with their learning.  

If you are looking for specific SEND support, parent workshops or advice on your child's needs, please contact Miss Mooney ( 

Here are some top tips to help you manage your child's needs at home:

  • Have a designated workspace 
  • Have a visual timetable so your child understands what is expected of them throughout the day
  • Have a set routine and structure to their day 
  • Set clear boundaries and expectations when it is 'learning time'
  • Set specific start and end times for each task - use a timer
  • Don't expect your child to complete all home learning tasks in one go
  • Plan in some fun, multi-sensory activities into the day (Lego, playdoh, music, baking)
  • Don't feel guilty about allowing your child to spend time on their favourite device after home learning
  • Ensure your child has regular screen breaks
  • Spend time outside in the fresh air 
  • Plan frequent movement breaks to help them stay focused
  • Change the settings on your device to allow for easier reading (colour, font, display brightness)
  • Stay in touch with school - we are still here to support you.
