Top ten tips for homework support:

  • Get into a regular pattern of homework time and be consistent with breaks.
  • Set realistic goals over the course of an evening for each piece of homework.
  • Always use Satchel.One for specific information on each piece.
  • Check Satchel.One regularly to ensure your child is also accessing it on a daily basis.
  • Ensure they have a good learning environment at home – ideally they should have a quiet, well-lit place to study with interruptions kept to a minimum.
  • Oversee social media usage – this should not interfere or distract them from the homework process.
  • Give plenty of praise.
  • Avoid the battleground – set up clear homework rules that you all agree with and stick to them.
  • Talk to your children about their day, their classes and the work that is expected of them and what your role can be to support them.
  • Respond positively when they ask for help. Ask exactly how you can help and if you can’t help immediately say when it’s convenient.
  • Always make the time.
