OUR RESPONSE TO THE COVID PANDEMIC
Since the outcome of the pandemic families have faced changing and difficult times with the education of their children. Schooling has been seriously affected and WES responded to the unprecedented demand for help and support. We have worked hard to adapt to the challenges and assist families in UK and all over the world to receive school materials and continue their children’s education without interruption. As one family in the UAE wrote recently:
“I would like to thank you and the entire team of WES for being supportive whenever needed. It would have been a challenge for me to homeschool without WES.”
All WES courses are kept in line with any changes in the national curriculum. This has meant updating most of our courses since the changes brought in a few years ago. Some of the most recent changes have been a rethinking of the Humanities topics for Key Stages 1 and 2 which provide a broad selection of topics in both History and Geography – all national curriculum topics plus some further optional topics.
The WES Science course at Key Stages 1 and 2 is currently being completely re-written. It has always met national curriculum requirements but a new and exciting range of topic books is now being included and some topics are being revised and extended.
In Key Stage 3, new courses in all subjects have been written and now include not only national curriculum requirements but also the most up-to-date textbooks and other complementary material.
