Lessons Continuing at R.E.A.L.
R.E.A.L. Education sites have remained open to children of key workers and young people classed as vulnerable, with social distancing and other safety measures implemented to keep everyone as safe as possible.
Extra cleaning has been commissioned, hygiene services continue to be maintained and posters have been displayed in relation to hygiene and social distancing guidelines
On site sessions have been changed and adapted to take into account safety guidelines. For example, recent activities from R.E.A.L. Adventure include baking on the embers of a fire, bike riding, making fires, cooking, whittling and archery. Land Based Studies learners have been planting lots of seeds, whilst Construction learners have been painting signs for the R.E.A.L. allotment.
Throughout all sites, vocational and academic subjects continue to be adapted and delivered safely by dedicated R.E.A.L. staff members.
Steve Quinn, Joint Managing Director of R.E.A.L. Education said: “Where it is safe for young people to be at home, that is where we will ask them to stay. We try our utmost to go the extra mile to ensure continuity of learning and progress for our young people.
“As with many of our colleagues in the NHS, logistics and the food industry, we provide services which are critical and must continue to be delivered. The risks of working outside the home are recognised by us all, and we want to thank R.E.A.L. staff sincerely for continuing to work hard for our learners.”
