Interrupted learning

Whatever has caused your child's interrupted learning, they may need some additional support to help them do their best at school. For example:

  • If you are a service family, your child's education may have been interrupted because you are moving around due to deployment at home or abroad. Your child may have attended many schools in the UK and abroad. Your child will need to adjust to these moves and to the way that each school operates.

  • If your child is ill, they may be in hospital or recovering at home. Please see our Health needs page.

  • You can download a factsheet on School attendance from the Enquire website.

How can I help?

  • Get involved with your child's school as much as possible.
  • Encourage your child to spend time with friends where possible.
  • Help with homework.
  • Talk about what's going on.
  • Prepare for any changes.
