Psycho-social resource packs to support the transition back to school

Dear Parents/Carers

With news of a gradual return to school  we would like to  make you aware of these Psycho-social resource packs to support the transition back to school.

In the Children, Young People and Families section: https://learn.nes.nhs.scot/29910/psychosocial-mental-health-and-wellbeing-support/taking-care-of-other-people/working-with-young-people-and-families you will find resource packs focusing on supporting a return to school, written by the NES Early Intervention TIPS Clinicians in NHS Grampian, as detailed below:

There is also a resource for parents/carers to support children and young people with long-term physical health conditions, with tips for managing anxiety about coming out of lockdown:

We hope you find these resources helpful

Digital Learning Responsible Use Communication

All learners in Boroughmuir High School have access to, and make use of, digital technologies to support their learning both in school and at home. There are two guides attached:

  1. Digital Learning – Responsible Use Protocol
  2. Digital Learning – Quick Start Guide

All pupils and parents/carers should read the Digital Learning Responsible Use Protocol. The Quick Start Guide is a one page summary of the Protocol. The purpose of this protocol is to highlight steps to stay safe when using digital technology. We are enabling the video feature in Microsoft Teams to allow live two-way video lessons during times when blended learning may be necessary.

In sharing this protocol we will assume permission to use the video function, and adherence to responsible use is accepted. If you do not want to child to take part in live video lessons if deemed appropriate by the class teacher then please contact admin@boroughmuir.edin.sch.uk.
