Some Useful Links
PACY have some really useful information about sources of support which they are regularly updating as new information is coming in…might be useful for some settings as it has listed all the different types of financial support that employers and staff can potentially access during the crisis.
Home Schooling Resources
Twinkl, a company used by many Bristol schools for resources have recently announced the following offer:
As the Coronavirus spreads, we’re aware that more schools are closing and pupils’ learning is being disrupted. Parents, carers and teachers are looking for ways to ensure the continuity of education during school closures so that no children miss out on valuable learning time.
To support you during this period, Twinkl is offering every teacher in England access to all Twinkl resources with a One Month Ultimate Membership, totally free of charge. We’re also extending this to every parent and carer in your school so your pupils can still have access to high-quality learning during any periods of disruption. Setting this up is really easy to do – go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS.
Due to the current Covid-19 crisis we are going to be offering online classes in Pilates, Yoga, Dance Fitness, Drumming, Zumba and Mindfulness and Online Retreats
We will also be offering specific chair based movement for those with disability or who cannot manage standing classes.
World Jungle are offering free online classes to support you during the Covid-19 crisis, all classes will be offered through the free Zoom Platform and we can provide instructions for you on how to access and use this platform.
All classes are 40 minutes (that’s the limit for Zoom’s free option). Classes are free but you are welcome to donate if you are able.
Please do email or call us on 07889 512644 if you need support to access the classes – we are having a test meeting on Thursday 19th March at 10am before our first class starts on Friday at 10am.
