Blog 4: Teachers working away from the school environment

Blog 5: What difference a year makes: Changing priorities for schools

In this blog, we look at the role of schools in caring, not only for their pupils, but also for their communities. We note that it took a pandemic to open up the space which allowed this crucial part of what teachers and schools do to be noted by the outside world. A year on from the start of the national lockdown, we consider what we could learn about schools’ priorities from the evidence we have heard from teachers, unions, and school leaders.
