Learning Together: Families and Schools
Resources and advice for families when supporting children’s learning
Parents and carers have a crucial role in supporting their child's learning at home and at school.
The Northern Territory Government advice, in line with the latest health recommendation from the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC), is that schools are safe and all students are expected to attend in person from Day 1, Term 2, 2020.
Where a child is learning from home due to vulnerabilities to COVID-19 or direction by a health professional to self-isolate or quarantine, schools will provide learning to support the continuation of learning from home.
Some of the areas to consider when leading learning from home are:
- caring for the health and wellbeing of your family
- establishing routines and expectations
- creating a safe learning environment including online safety
- maintaining regular communication with your child, teacher and school.
