Busy Brains have supported schools, pupils and their parents with their learning during school closures and continue to provide online learning. If some school work is proving a challenge (for pupils or parents!) it can be emailed to the Busy Brains teacher 24 hours in advance of the online session so that we can prepare any additional resources to help with understanding.

All sessions led by qualified teachers.

No minimum commitment required. You can have 1 session or 99 sessions!

Busy Brains teachers can also build a programme of specific work to target areas that may need extra input.

Lessons are held over Zoom or Microsoft Teams.

    All teachers have been given advice and training where needed about delivering remote lessons safely.

  • null
    All our teachers have up-to-date DBS certificates and relevant training.

  • null
    Parents may remain in the room where the lesson is taking place if they wish whilst their child is receiving an online lesson. We ask however that siblings/other children are not present.


  • null
    Teachers can mute any participants at any time and have been advised to end the lesson immediately if anything happens that they feel uncomfortable about.


  • null
    Parents have consented to setting up .busybrains email accounts for their children and are advised to only allow their children to use these accounts for Busy Brains communications.



Setting up the System

  • null
    Parents are given guidance on how to set up the email account, access Google drive and Google hangouts. Parents/pupils should not share this guidance with non-Busy Brains personnel.

  • null
    Hangouts messages and video are encrypted.


  • null
    If you cannot see or hear the teacher, ensure that the audio and video buttons/icons have been pressed.

Lesson Preparation and Delivery

  • null
    Ensure that any external noise will not affect the lesson in any way.

  • null
    Find a suitable room in the house where your child can work undisturbed and without distractions.


  • null
    Try to ensure that there are no bright lights behind your child as this could potentially make it difficult to be seen properly.
  • null
    Ensure that you have everything ready before the lesson begins – resources, books, pencil case etc.


  • null
    Please remember that this is still a formal lesson and not an informal social media conversation. Everyone – teacher and pupil should speak and behave appropriately as they would in face to face lessons.


  • null
    Be ready 5 minutes before the allocated and booked lesson time.




  • null
    You will receive an invite from the teacher when they are ready to start the lesson.




  • null
    Lessons will end when the teacher ends the video call – this will automatically end the session for the pupil. Lessons will be strict on timings as the teacher may have a another lesson booked following yours.





  • null
    If it is a group session, please be mindful that the audio system only allows one direction of audio at a time, so you may need to wait for a few seconds to talk. Listen carefully to the instructions from the teacher.
