Helping Your Child to Learn
Parents and carers have a vital role to play in supporting pupils’ learning.
The booklet above as well as the links below, contain resources that will help you support your child with homework, preparing for exams and improving key study skills. We have divided these resources into the following categories:
How to Help with Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
It is important for parents and carers to encourage pupils to proof read their work carefully and to take pride in the way in which they present their homework.
How to Help with Revision for Tests and Exams
Preparing for tests and exams can be very stressful for students (and parents). Advice for revision techniques and preparation for exams.
How to Help with Encouraging a Growth Mindset and Positive Attitude
It is important that pupils take responsibility for their own learning and that they develop effective study habits.
GCSEPod is available to all students at Northgate High School. We have subscribed to this award-winning service to give your child access to thousands of hours of professionally produced, audio-visual content which will benefit them throughout the coming year.
