Remote education information for parents and carers

Supporting your children’s remote education during coronavirus (COVID-19)
Information and support for parents and carers of children who are learning at home.

Schools have a duty to provide remote education for state-funded, school-age children whose attendance would be contrary to government guidance or law around coronavirus (Covid-19).

Solihull Council schools and colleges have been working hard to implement remote education effectively. The government’s expectations for remote education are the same for all schools, yet we know that every school community and every family within them is having to manage those expectations in a different way. This is a very challenging time for all concerned. All schools want to strike a balance between providing high quality remote learning and supporting families.

Your child’s school may contact you to offer support with remote learning, if they think you would benefit from it. Here, you will find support with:

  • Online safety
  • Social, emotional and mental health of children and adults
  • Technology tips
  • Importance of fun
  • Tips for helping children at home
  • Frequently asked questions
