How have schools supported families and communities – beyond online learning – during COVID? And what are the lessons for how schools can contribute to wider goals, such as a cleaner and greener environment? Followed by a Q&A with the online audience this event is part of the 2021 ESRC Festival of Social Sciences and is accompanied by an online showcase documenting the role of Arbourthorne Community Primary School in Sheffield before and during the ongoing pandemic.
