Leading Continuity of Learning

COVID 19 - PDST UPDATES AND RESOURCES

The current situation in relation to the COVID 19 virus is a particular challenge for school leadership teams. Although school contexts are different there are some key themes for school leaders during this time which are brought into focus in the categories below.

 

  • The PDST Leadership Team has compiled a suite of information and supports that may be useful to school leaders during the current period. These pages can be used to help support and develop the thinking of school leaders at this time and will continue to be developed over the coming period.

 

  • The PDST Leadership Team advocates a whole school approach to dealing with the current challenges. In particular, in supporting Continuity of Learning, school leaders will need regular engagement with their management team and their staff to be able to support pupils effectively. 

 

The PDST Leadership Team continues to provide support and guidance to school leaders through this period.
