How Well Has Your School Communicated about COVID-19?

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a strain on us all, but how has your school met the challenge of communicating about the virus?

Across the world, companies, organisations, and individuals have been coming to terms with COVID-19 and what it means for them.

The pandemic has caused everyone to face their own unique challenges. For schools, this has meant adapting to a world of digital classrooms, where most children learned at home under the guidance of their parents.

Home learning hasn’t been the only difficulty. Many schools are relied upon by parents and their community as a source of information. As a result, staff have been bombarded with a multitude of questions about COVID-19 and the impact it will have on schools.

Regular, organised, and consistent communication has proven to be the best way to tackle these challenges, and some schools have adapted better than others.

We want to hear from you about how your trust, school, or college has communicated with its community before and during the pandemic and subsequent lockdown.

So, we’re asking staff at trusts, schools, and colleges throughout the UK to fill out our communications questionnaire.

As a ‘thank you’ for your contribution, all participants in the questionnaire will receive a complimentary copy of our eBook, The School’s Guide to Parental Engagement, via email.

Once all the responses have been collected, and the data has been interpreted, we’ll publish our findings in a retrospective evaluation of how education communicated about the coronavirus.

In the meantime, we hope that you all stay safe. Don’t forget, we’ll get through this.
