As schools across the UK are warned to expect further disruptions due to staff shortages and pupil absences, many teachers, parents, and school staff will be preparing contingency plans for home learning.  

To support you, we have updated our in-depth guidance and safety checklist on the safer use of platforms such as Zoom, Cisco Webex, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and GoToWebinar.  

The guidance for using these platforms includes advice on preparation, broadcasting and reviewing. These can be found by clicking on the buttons below.
