So the weekend is over and the reality hits.
To all of you for who facilitating home Education was never in your remit.
To the self employed friends of mine who used the time their children were at school to do their admin.
To those who used the time their children were at school as downtime.
To those of you with preschoolers who demand attention that you would normally be directing elsewhere.
To those of you with children who being at school and actually learning is such a massive part of their life that they are in tears at the thought of not being able to achieve it.
To those with children who really don’t want to work from home but you know need to.
To carers of children with special needs that need the routine of a day in school.
To those of you with loved ones who are key workers who can’t isolate and go in day in and day out into the lion’s den.
To those who are scared they are going to make a right hash of it.
To those struggling with the fear of catching COVID – more so because they or loved ones are in the high risk groups.
To those of you who are key workers who are heading into the lion’s den to help feed us, nurse us and look after the children who are still at school.
To everyone who needs it.
It is all very well saying don’t stress too much about the education side of it….when you have polar ends of the scale the needs of all need to be balanced. Good luck with it. Xxxx
