A Roadmap for Renewal
A practical toolkit for schools seeking a successful return after lockdown
As schools begin a phased reopening, we’re reminded that the full political and personal repercussions of the last three months have barely begun to be felt. So much still remains unknown. The overriding need to ensure the safety of students and staff is taking up vast amounts of leaders’ time and energy. However, the psychological impact of Covid-19 and the wellbeing of the school community must be recognised. As does the welfare of our families as the virus continues to expose and exacerbate inequalities in society. We are all desperate to get back to school and rebuild our places of learning. However, we cannot return to ‘business as usual’. In almost every sector there have been significant changes in working practices. Schools are no different. There needs to be renewal to reflect the times we now live and learn in.
