Year 11 parent and pupil maths revision sessions

Parents and pupils were invited to 4 different sessions aimed at giving them skills and techniques on how to revise for their Maths GCSE exam.

Revising maths before exams is proven to raise pupils’ grades and therefore it is important that pupils have the skills to revise successfully. The sessions focused on giving information and techniques on how to revise for maths exams and how parents can support this. Each session provided pupils with a personalised revision pack and a free revision stationary kit. Refreshment were provided for pupils ad their parents.

I was apprehensive about this due to school not been a very memorable time for me, but as my child is showing positive signs in his schooling I came along. The session was very informative and not at all what I was expecting. Now I can help my child even if I don’t understand the work so much due to understanding the revision booklets given today. Well worth an hour of my Saturday. “

Parents were not required to undertake any maths work throughout these sessions; their role was to support their child with the process of revision. However, all parents and pupils stayed and attempted multiple GCSE questions together.
