Home Education

Teaching children at home has become the new norm following recent school closures. Our partnership with BBC Education means that your child's education doesn't have to suffer as a result.

This home learning collection has been produced by experienced teaching professionals in accordance with the 2014 national curriculum. So, you can be confident that even outside the classroom, your child is getting the very best educational support. Whatever you need, however long you need it for, you're sure to find it here. 


5 Top Tips for Teaching at Home

This will be many parents' first experience of home education. Below you'll find a few tips that may just help smooth the transition into teaching from home:

  • Make a learning plan. This could include a timetable, ground rules, aims, topics and reward schemes. Doing this on day one will help you stay organised and in control. 
  • Stay active. Whether it's a silly dance, star jumps or jogging on the spot, exercise is proven to help children focus and absorb information. 
  • Get dressed. It might sound obvious but don't be tempted to let your child stay in their PJ's all day. They're far more likely to take home education seriously if they're dressed for the occasion. 
  • Stay in touch. Don't be afraid to reach out and ask for help or advice.
  • Relax. Whether you think so or not, you're going to be great! No one expects you to be a pro straight away so don't put too much pressure on yourself. And if you ever feel like it's all getting a bit too much, take your child for a walk or read a book together.
