How to help your child

1. Encourage them to take an active interest in the news; regularly reading and analysing stories about the UK Economy will help them to develop their academic literacy and contextual understanding

2. Encourage them to be organised from the start – this means having well organised folders and work.

3. Remember – for every one hour of study in class, students should be undertaking at least one hour of study at home – this could be preparing for lessons using google classroom, reading and making notes or revising past content.
