Education Support
Welcome to our first newsletter of 2021.

It has been a tough start to the year with indecision on primary schools opening, confusion on exam assessments and then a full national lockdown.

Please remember that we are here for you. Our helpline remains open 24/7 for anyone who needs to talk. We also have a grants service for teachers and education staff who need short-term financial relief.

Below we have included shareable information about the helpline. Please spread the word as it’s a lifeline to so many teachers. We also share tips and advice to help you cope with the latest lockdown.
