COVID-19/School Closure Information

Distance Learning
Following the Government's closure of schools due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have a dedicated section of the website to provide Distance Learning Resources. This includes instructions and links to access teacher-set work, national resources and mental health wellbeing.

StarLine home learning helpline

StarLine – a new home learning telephone helpline - is now live to support parents and carers nationwide.

A group of partners including David Ross Education Trust, Freshworks, Future Academies, Inspiration Trust, Mumsnet, Oak National Academy, PLMR, StarAcademies, Triple P Positive Parenting Program and United Learning have come together to create and deliver StarLine. Each partner has pledged their people, expertise and resources to support parents and carers in the following ways:

  • By providing access to a team of qualified teachers, education and parenting experts.
  • By focussing on providing practical ideas, support and reassurance.
  • By offering tips, techniques and resources to enable parents to give their children the support they need to continue learning while schools are closed.
  • By supporting family wellbeing and mental health.
  • By covering all phases of education and subjects plus behaviour, pupil wellbeing and SEND.

StarLine is available to parents and carers of pupils from all schools nationwide. Free, confidential advice is available six days a week by phoning the StarLine team on 0330 313 9162. For more information, visit or follow @StarLineSupport on Twitter.

StarLive will be broadcast live on StarLine YouTube channel every Wednesday morning at 8.30am and will finish before PE with Joe begins at 9am.
