Over the last few weeks teachers, children and young people and parents have been overwhelmed with offers of free resources to support home learning.
A Remote Learning Glow site has now been developed where pupils can access innovative learning experiences from home, for example, links to a specific aspect of a website, problem solving/creativity tasks etc. This site is being managed so that a pupil can easily find interesting learning to engage with on a daily basis.The site can be accessed at:
The site is accessible on Chrome or Firefox from laptops, desktops, iPads and phones – but users need a Glow account.
The above statement also contained guidance to provide learners, parents, carers with answers to some common questions about how the SQA will deliver a fair, safe and secure set of results over the coming months:
Free Meal Entitlement Contingency Plans during school closures
Glasgow City Council are currently issuing Farmfoods Cards to eligible parents and carers. It may take up to 10 days to receive your card.
Our parents and carers whose children and young people are currently entitled and in receipt of footwear and clothing grants and/or free school meals will be receiving information this week about the contingency plans in place to help replace free meal entitlement while pupils are not attending school.
We are using the clothing grant and/or free school meals' data as this involves a larger number of families who will receive this support.
Letters are being posted out direct to home addresses with a £20 pre-paid Farmfoods card that can be used to buy food at stores across the city - click here to find your nearest store.
£20 will then be uploaded every two weeks to the cards for each Glasgow primary and secondary pupil in a family who currently receive a footwear and clothing grant and/or free school meals.
Please hold on to the card - each card has a serial number on it which will be matched to the addressee - and we plan to top up the cards on the following dates:

Our NHS is here for us all during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic; however, our GPs and hospitals are exceptionally busy. Some services such as dentists are closed and pharmacies have restricted opening times. Many of us will prefer to avoid travelling for healthcare if we can avoid it. It is hard to know where to turn. In Scotland you can turn to www.NHSinform.scot day and night for information on health conditions, what you should do, and when you should get in touch with our professionals.
We may now be having to spend more time at home, perhaps isolated from the friends, family and other relationships that we know are vital to keeping ourselves mentally healthy. It may also be harder for us to do the things that normally help keep us well.
There are things we can do to look after our mental wellbeing during this time. On the link below, there is information, links and resources that can help keep you informed and protect your mental health.
