Ahead of the phased opening of UK schools to more pupils, we have released a film for Department for Education thanking all those who have kept learning going during the lockdown. It celebrates the hard work, dedication and ingenuity shown by teachers and parents alike as they’ve kept the nation’s children learning from home throughout the past 10 weeks.

The uplifting film has been created exclusively using real footage, captured organically by teachers and parents as they and their children have adapted to remote learning and home schooling. It showcases teachers’ passion for teaching and some of the innovative ways they have stayed connected with their classes, as well as the patience, enthusiasm and commitment shown by parents in unquestionably challenging circumstances. It also captures the enjoyment and gratitude of children themselves, who have adapted so brilliantly to new ways of learning at home.

It is set to George Ezra’s Pretty Shining People, after the Brit Award-winning artist – whose parents are both teachers – donated use of the song to this campaign for a nominal fee.
