Twinkl

To support schools during this period, Twinkl is offering every teacher in England access to all Twinkl resources with a One Month Ultimate Membership, totally free of charge. They are also extending this to every parent and carer in all schools so students can have access to high-quality learning during any periods of disruption.

Setting this up is really easy to do - go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offerand enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS 

They have asked that we please also share this code with you, our parent/carers and share this link above on our website so parent/carers know where and how to activate their code. 

They've also put together some helpful guidance to outline a few ideas for how you can support students during school closures, ensure high quality learning continues and support teachers, parents and carers to make the most from this offer of help.
