Letters and Support to Parents

From the Department of Education

Support for parents

We understand this is a challenging time for parents too, many of whom are now supporting their children’s learning at home or may have questions about their children potentially returning to school. 

We have developed the following guidance and resources for parents to support them at this time:  

  • Q&A which answers key questions parents may have 
  • BBC Bitesize Daily Secondary is being launched on April 20th   9am it can be accessed on iplayer or BBC red button it is live each day where students can do mini lessons Maths, English and Science and other subjects
  • This is good for well being
  • On iPlayer they are also launching teacher talks for parents who may be struggling and need advice
  • How can I help guide my child on HegartyMaths? Unfortunately, HegartyMaths don’t have a parent portal yet – They would love one and have plans to make one… so watch this space! In the meantime, you can log in with your child to see how they’re doing.
