The start of a new school year can be both anxious and exciting for pupils and parents alike. As a parent, you may be wondering how best to support your child’s learning and academic development, which starts with having all the necessities for the back to school period. The team at Leeds Tuition Centre want to share some advice to help you through the first few weeks of the new school year – here are our top back to school necessities.

Textbooks and Revision Materials

It’s never too early to start revising, especially if your child is preparing for their GCSEs or an 11 Plus exam. You can support your child’s learning throughout the new academic year by making sure they have the right materials to complement their curriculum.

A Good Quality School Bag or Backpack

It’s important that children take the right books and learning materials with them to school. Make sure they have a school bag or backpack that is big enough to carry their books and other school staples. Helping children to get their bags ready for school can also make them feel well prepared and organised, ensuring they go into the classroom with the right kind of mindset.

New Stationery

Buying new stationery, pencil cases and classroom necessities may not seem like a big thing, but it helps children feel prepared so they can start back at school with the right mindset. Everybody loves new stationery – colourful pens and pencils, rulers, even compasses and maths sets can help to make the start of term feel a little more exciting.

A Quiet Space to Learn at Home

Children of all ages will need the right environment to optimise their learning, so make sure they start the school year with somewhere to do their homework and study in peace. A desk, comfortable chair, even a set of headphones to block out noise are back to school necessities that allow your child to become immersed in their learning.

A Plan for Academic Success

Going into the new school year with a plan and clear objectives is so important, helping your child feel motivated and allowing you to monitor their progress. This is something you can support them with by talking, planning and finding out where they would like to focus their attention. If you want some support yourself so you can help your child achieve their true potential, we will be happy to assist you, with tailored tutoring for KS1 to KS4 pupils. We offer tuition in English, maths and science, as well as helping children prepare for specific examinations such as GCSEs, SATs and the 11+.
