Support for returning to school

The last few months have been very unsettling for leaders, practitioners, parents and children. Everyone has had their own experience of dealing with COVID-19 and this is likely to have had an impact on the mental health and wellbeing of our school population and communities. 

Schools are now starting to reopen and expanding their provision. During this transition OLP would like to ensure that everyone has all the information and support possible to make this a success. In this section you will find links to all the latest and most relevant websites and documents for leaders, practitioners and parents to prepare themselves and their children.
