Remote working

The emPSN network offers resilience to enable schools to be able to teach and work remotely.

Summer exams

Ofqual (the exam board regulator) and the Department for Education have set up a website to provide updates regarding the summer exam season for all stakeholders.

Your school should be able to provide further updates on planned trips or any changes to current advice.
