"I'm stuck - can you help me?"

"83% of parents struggle to support their child with homework."

The “I’m stuck – can you help me?” report commissioned by Becta, the government agency for technology in education, suggests there is a desire from parents to become more involved in their child’s education with the majority (81%) calling for more guidance and advice on how best to support their children’s learning outside of the classroom.

Simple technologies like school websites and learning platforms can aid parents in making homework hell a thing of the past, providing parents with timely information which allows them to keep up to date with school learning and reinforce the work done in the classroom, at home.

We have put together some parents resources to help you:
