How to support your child's study with school closures and exam cancellations

We have all been looking forward to 2021. A new year, a fresh start and a vaccine to help us return to face-to-face contact with our nearest and dearest. Yet, on 4 January, the Prime Minister announced Tier 5 restrictions across England, school closures until after February half-term at best and, it was later confirmed, summer examinations would be cancelled (including GCSE, AS Level, A Level and Applied General Qualifications). The situation across Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland is similar.


If you’re wondering how to keep your teen on track with their studies now schools are closed and they no longer have the incentive to work towards examinations, we’ve created a guide written specifically to help you with the situation as it stands now.


More than ever, your teen needs your strength and encouragement to reassure them that, during these unsettled times, they still have a bright and positive future ahead.


If you'd prefer to listen to our suggestions, we recently presented to the University College London Parents and Carers network and cover many of the ideas featured in our guides.
