How else can we help?

Based on feedback from parents and pupils, other key areas of support are as listed below. I have added some links and we will address these in the follow up evening session in the new year. However, if you would like any individual support sooner, please do not hesitate to ask.

Coping with Yr 11 stress

Please note that extreme cases should be referred to the community leader and GP who can both offer support and liaise with professional support. This should be done sooner rather than later.


Making an revision time table



Practical advice for families

As a parent/carer you will have many roles, here are some tips to help with your role as academic cheerleader for your child. Some you may find useful and some may not suit your family.

Physical well-being

  • Children need sleep, this may mean shutting off the family wifi at a certain time, or allowing a lay-in on the weekend.
  • A well-balanced diet helps energy levels. Children must eat before exams. Nothing too heavy and equally nothing that will leave them hungry.
  • Some form of daily exercise will help energy and stress levels, as well as aiding sleeping and cognitive function.

Emotional well-being

  • There will likely be a time that your child feels overwhelmed, demotivated or will struggle, although you may feel like you are living with a difficult teenager, for young people, the struggle is real. Talk to them or encourage them to speak to an adult with whom they are comfortable sharing.
  • Some children shut down when stressed, especially if they feel anxious. Separate the behaviour from them and support them through the difficult time.
  • Discuss what the symptoms of stress and anxiety are for your child – a sore tummy, a headache, irritability, no sleep, too much sleep, etc. Then talk about how to identify the epicentre of the stress/anxiety and deal with the issue head on.


  • Provide supplies like pens, paper, post-it notes, cards, highlighters, wall charts, dividers, folders, etc for revision
  • Help your child to create a long term revision plan from now until the exams and then a more sharpened one when the exam timetable is published.
  • Show an interest in homework and revision by testing and looking over completed work.
  • Ask for evidence of what has been done during a revision session; do not accept revision as looking/reading something on a screen or on paper. Children should be making notes and resources.
  • Agree on rules for homework and revision. For example, 40 minutes work, 20 minutes break. Or no access to the mobile 7pm-9pm in favour of revision. Is music allowed in the background?
  • Help your child to organise a work area in a quiet, clear space in the home.
  • Put key dates in your diary to avoid a panic stage.
  • Go online to read through the specifications for the subject/exam board that your child is sitting exams in (feel free to ask staff for help if you are unsure).
  • Agree on a balance of work and social life and stick to the agreement. This should also consider extra-curricular activities.
  • Consider a reward structure to motivate your child. Just like adults work towards a salary and sometimes a bonus, so should children; this is part of human nature and what encourages hard work.
  • Create a revision timetable together and display it in a central area of the house so there is no arguing or forgetting what has been scheduled. Ensure you schedule family and friend time as well.
  • Praise your child for sticking to the revision timetable.
  • Provide favourite snacks and water for revision periods
  • Be flexible if you need to alter the schedule if social events come up.
  • Try to be sensitive to the pressure your child is feeling, sometimes this pressure may explode or may bottle up.
