TEACH – Teachers' Perceived Impact of the SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic on the Development of School-Relevant Skills

TEACH investigates teachers' perceived impact of closures of child care facilities, nursery schools and schools on the development of school-relevant skills of primary school children in Germany and the UK.

Child care facilities, nursery schools, and schools were closed for long periods during the Corona pandemic. Children were therefore educated at a distance within the framework of homeschooling and in alternating classes. In addition, classes were cancelled due to quarantine orders and the Corona illnesses of children and teachers. All this has presumably affected the development of primary school children’s early school-relevant skills.

In the project TEACH, we aim to investigate whether and if so, what changes teachers perceive in the development of these skills in children who currently attend Year / Primary 1 and 2. In addition, we will examine whether primary school teachers in Germany and the UK perceive changes in skill development to differing degrees. In Germany, schools were closed for longer on average (38 vs. 27 weeks). In addition, formal schooling in the UK begins before primary school.

The survey will take about 10 minutes. Please note that you can only participate if you are currently a class teacher of Year / Primary 1 or 2.
