DfE Recommended E-Learning Resources

The DfE have brought together an initial list of online educational resources to help children to learn at home: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/remote-education-during-coronavirus-covid-19#remote-education-resources-for-teachers

These websites have been identified by some of the country’s leading educational experts and offer a wide range of support and resources for pupils of all ages.  The list includes subject-specific resources for:

They are currently being offered for free.

Individual resources cannot replace a school’s properly planned curriculum, and the resources in this list are not intended to do so.

They may be useful for parents in considering how they could support their children’s education, but they should not be used in place of existing resources which schools may be using as part of their continued provision for pupils’ education at this time.

Schools may also wish to explore this initial list of resources as they consider how they continue to support children’s education.

We will review and update the list over time. Details on how that will work will be provided in the coming weeks.

This list of resources is not exhaustive and there are many other resources available to schools.

Before using these resources, you should refer to the guidance ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19): safeguarding in schools, colleges and other providers’, which has further information on how to keep children safe online.

FareShare membership https://fareshare.org.uk/getting-food/fareshare-go-support/

Firstly, there’s our paid scheme where we can set you up with a membership to receive deliveries from 80kg plus of food. Whilst the food we supply is free we do charge for delivery and sourcing. The membership is varied based on your requirements and the number of people you are serving but we always try and tailor the supply to your needs. For example, we supply school breakfast clubs, food banks, community cafes and whole range of organisations each with different needs. We work closely with each to ensure we’re supplying food they need, however menus do need to be flexible as with the nature of surplus food we receive large quantities of items and cannot always guarantee specific things.

We also have options to collect from our warehouse in Leicester and this arrangement could be free of charge. This option would be only for bread, vegetables and fruit. If this or the paid membership is something you are interested in pursuing please complete the attached application form with as much information as you can and return to myself at your earliest convenience. I will then be in touch to arrange a visit to discuss your requirements.


FareShare Go

If your budget does not allow for a paid membership or you do not need such a large quantity of food, then you may be interested in FareShare Go. This is completely free of charge but requires collections by yourselves to a nearby Tesco, Waitrose or Asda store and the food is supplied on an ad hoc basis depending on availability. You can read more about this option on our website. If you are interested in this then please complete the online form.

You are not limited to just one membership as you can have both if you wish, it just depends on the needs of your organisation. We are keen to help fight hunger and prevent food waste, so will work with you on what is best depending on your needs. Please visit https://fareshare.org.uk/getting-food/fareshare-go-support/ for more details or contact Katie Toone, Emergency Member Support, Part time hours (usually Mon-Weds) FareShare Midlands Mobile: 07398 704432.
