Mike Garvey, co-hub manager of Herts and Bucks Hub, reviews research on designing a recovery programme in this blog.

Steve Whittle, Principal of Hayes School and Senior Partner of the Impact Alliance Hub, shares his reflections on leading through crisis and what matters most in this letter to his Governors, shared with us as a blog.

Medway Teaching School Alliance are curating virtual CPD on their website.

Bengeworth Multi-Academy Trust are redeploying their Ed Psych, Speech Therapy and other external agency staff to run online coaching and CPD with staff. Sharing here: key resources for this SEND CPD.

Teaching staff at Holy Cross Catholic Primary in South London have made personal films for their classes, and parents welcomed this human contact and encouragement. They also still send a newsletter each week which helps foster a sense of community and encourage small steps/achievement, such as for helping to make a meal.

Cassie Buchanan shares useful insights here into how Charles Dickens' virtual school has developed and adapted - including timetabling for the rhythms of the family home.
