The half-term break is on its way and so we wanted to let you know why your students should be using EducationCity’s Home Access.
Home Access is perfect for your students to develop and retain the skills they’ve learnt at school during the holiday at home.
Tell Me… What’s Home Access?
Home Access allows your students to access EducationCity away from school, allowing them to continue their learning at home to combat holiday learning loss.
It gives teachers flexibility; students can access any work set by teachers or even explore EducationCity themselves.
What’s more, letting your students learn over the half-term holiday is really important as research indicates that as many as one in three children regress academically due to a break away from school*.
