COVID-19 Resources

Always supporting educators through our global network

Resources for schools, educators, and families

Since the UK Government announced school closures on the 20th March, 8 million pupils in the UK and 32,770 schools were left without a clear indication of when schools would return again. This is an unprecedented time for everyone and the first countrywide school shutdown we have experienced in British history. anzuk are tirelessly working through this uncertain time to ensure there are still opportunities for children to receive an exceptional learning experience, whether that be from home or from within the classroom.

There are several steps we have implemented over the last few months to ensure the wellbeing of staff, children and parents which are accessible below. We have created additional content in response to COVID-19 that will guide the return to school, and most importantly we have introduced mandatory safety training that is required of all anzuk employees prior to returning to a classroom.

Finally, you will have access to a large bank of professional and personal development training and resources which is continuously being updated.

Schools

Headteacher Talks: Listen to what school leaders are doing in your area! No-one could have planned for this unusual time and we are still learning new procedures based on new guidelines, which can change rapidly!

We virtually met with senior school leaders across the UK to share best practise and to get an insight into what different school settings, regions and what those senior leaders are implementing to ensure a safe environment for staff and pupils, how the education landscape may see some eminent changes and how emotional wellbeing is being highlighted.

Educators during COVID-19 Feedback: Listening to educators is one of our main priorities, it allows us to build strong relationships and ensures we share the same values in creating exceptional learning experiences. Therefore, we surveyed all educators working with anzuk across the UK to understand what their main needs, concerns and hopes are. The responses we received were optimistic and there was an evident desire to get back into the classroom to continue teaching again.

Downloadable resources: Our free resources will provide you with a safe environment for children to return to. From correct handwashing to safe play in a restricted area, you can place these posters around the classroom as a gentle reminder for your students.

Educators

Mandatory COVID-19 Training: If you are planning a return to a UK classroom, it is now a compulsory requirement that you complete our online COVID-19 training program. This will take around 15-20 minutes to complete. As the training institute is outsourced by anzuk, you will need to confirm your consent for anzuk to pass on your details to SmartLog who will be in touch with further details.

A link will be available here for you to submit your consent soon.
