COVID-19 protocol

We continually review our practices to make sure MOTM is safe and adheres to the latest government guidelines.

What changes have we made?

⦁ Resources required for each lesson are reduced to only those that are essential.

⦁ Sessions can take place outside where possible, and weather permitting!

⦁ Each child will also be given a personal whiteboard and pen in order to limit the sharing of resources (and the debates over who gets to write).

⦁ The MOTM platform has been reviewed and revised to allow educators to continue to provide reports and feedback to teachers on the children who take part.

⦁ We’re communicating with schools to discuss timetables and create risk assessments which are specific to your setting and in line with your policies.
