How to support your child

We are sure that you already do many of these things to support your child but here is a useful reminder for you to refer to:

  • Help them to structure revision for tests and assessments
  • Make good use of BBC Bitesize
  • Encourage pupils to think about what they have learnt in the lesson and apply it to their use of technology at home.¬†
