Education Minister, Peter Weir, has today published guidance for schools on supporting remote learning during the Covid-19 outbreak.

The guidance provides advice and support to schools and is designed to bring together what we are learning about emerging practice during this unprecedented time for the education system.

Education Minister Peter Weir said: “I want to thank all the teachers and staff who are working so hard to ensure our pupils are supported at this time.

“I hope that schools and teachers will find the guidance provided by the Department helpful to support pupils’ learning. It is not intended to be prescriptive but to support schools as they develop and refine their practice around remote learning.

“My Department, working with the Education Authority and other key stakeholders, will add to the guidance during the coming weeks and months. In the coming weeks, we will publish a number of case studies to provide opportunities for schools to learn from each other.”
