Let’s talk fee assistance. Many parents believe that their child needs to be awarded a scholarship in order to receive financial help from a school. This isn’t the case. Over 168,000 private school pupils (33% of all pupils) get some sort of financial help. The 2018 ISC annual census shows that many schools have extended bursary provision in the last year, providing almost £400m means-tested fee assistance for pupils. Independent schools have become much more generous and this trend will continue.

This time, I want to talk about how best to support and encourage your child’s homework effort. A regular time and place for your child to do their homework is essential, so this isn’t negotiable each day. Agree with them when they will work after school, timing it so they have had a chance to unwind and have a snack before they start. Then remove any possible distractions such as the tv, mobile phones or siblings! Provide all they need to study close to hand. Their work space can be anywhere in the house, but it should be well-equipped, so they don’t waste time searching every room for a highlighter or a hole punch!
