During the coronavirus lockdowns, most pupils were learning at home. Now, even though most have returned to school, some pupils may still be home learning.

If you’re shielding or having to self isolate for example, you may have to continue doing your school work from home.

Learning from home has been and can still feel hard. It’s OK if you can’t do all the work you’d normally do in class or if you can’t finish everything your teachers send you. Just do what you can do.

Your school will understand that coronavirus and home learning be difficult for all sorts of reasons, like:
  1. finding it hard to learn without your teacher to help you;
  2. not having the right info or equipment at home;
  3. not having a quiet space at home to work;
  4. distractions like noisy siblings or people messaging you;
  5. having a support need that makes it hard to concentrate like dyslexia, ADHD or autism;
  6. having caring responsibilities at home that take up a lot of your time;
  7. finding it difficult that most pupils have returned to school.
Tips from teachers for pupils still home learning during coronavirus

If you’re struggling to do the home learning set by teachers, it’s important to find a way to tell them.

They should understand that it can be difficult and may be able to make suggestions that will help. If you don’t want to tell them, ask an adult you trust to get in touch with the school.

Also, remember that the adults who help care for you can get advice about extra support for learning from Enquire  – our helpline for parents, carers and professionals.
