The Lockdown Booklet has been created to enable parent carers to inform schools and settings about their child's experiences of lockdown, both positive and negative aspects. Not all children will be able to talk about or share effectively their experiences. There will be lots of pressure on school staff to unpick the lockdown experiences of our children. By sharing this booklet, we hope the gap can be bridged and support needs met quicker and easier. Sharing the positives can also be a conversational starter for staff and support positive well being and mindsets for our children.
By completing the booklet with the child or young person, where possible, it will hopefully enable staff to understand how the child can be supported.
The booklet has been created to support the Return To School Programme for parent carers currently being delivered.
