What Parents/Carers can do to help:

Your child has been given a Knowledge Organiser for each topic they study.  This summarizes the key information they must know if they are to be successful in this subject.  Please encourage them to learn this off by heart and revise topics regularly.

Encourage your child to join Google Classroom and SENECA, which can enable students to access topics at home.
