Home Learning Resources for Year 9

Help documents for parents/carers, including what you can access, per subject, to help your child with their work at home.

Following feedback from Parent’s Evening we’ve put together some information and resources to help with home learning. Please take a look at the attached resources, as well additional information on clubs and reading.

What is your Role as a Parent/Carer?

  • Attendance Officer: the best preparation for progress is ensuring your child is in school on time and attending lessons
  • Personal Assistant: help your child organise their time. Some deadlines overlap. Are the dates on the calendar?
  • Project Manager: agree a revision timetable, find a quiet space, what equipment is needed, how long will they work for?
  • Go-between: contact teachers if your child can’t or won’t ask questions or complete homework
  • Examiner: test your child on key knowledge using their revision materials. For instance, can your child recall formulae needed in Mathematics and Science?
