Ok summer is over. Due to elderly family members becoming disastrously and permanently ill (thanks, useless 2015 flu vaccine) I was/am not able to micromanage my entering year 11 child. She did a bit of revision.
Is there any "low hanging fruit" for a very stressed mother, I.e. What can I do at this stage to help her? I have organised some outside tutoring at least.
School has never provided much info, like exam schedules, to parents. She chooses to discard/forget anything like that as far as I can tell, if it was ever provided. Am I within my rights to demand school give me more info directly? I have already asked nicely, it doesn't work.
I can't imagine many year 10/11 children doing revision over the summer holidays. I have never considered asking any of mine to do so, so I wouldn't worry too much. The summer is for relaxing & having fun ( for the children, at least). At our school most letters home are now emailed or are on the website, could you enquire if this is done at your school?
