Short Online Festival

for Primary Schools and Early Learning Centres

We understand the pressures on all educational institutions during the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic. To make WAFF as flexible as possible for schools during this time we've made the following changes:

1. If you'd like your school community to have the experience of WAFF you can now include the link and passwords to the films in your school newsletter for families to enjoy at home.

2. We've offered a simplified, shorter classroom experience that can be streamed from our website straight into your classroom via your connected whiteboard. There is no longer any need to download media files.

 

3. The resources to extend children's experience of the film or films you select have been simplified yet still effectively support an exploration of access and inclusion.

Of course you're still welcome to enjoy the original event based WAFF experience. Click here to go to that page:
