To support this work, we would really value your opinion on homework in terms of frequency, value and your current experiences. Please take just a few minutes to complete a short questionnaire. Access to the questionnaire is via a password protected page. This password will be sent to parents/carers via a text message. Many thanks in advance for your time and views.

The teenage years can often feel like being on a rollercoaster for parents, carers and young people – plenty of highs, lows and uncertainty about what might be round the corner! The many physical, emotional and behaviour changes that occur mean that adolescence can be a time of vulnerability as well as a time of great opportunity for young people. 

Knox Academy is offering a six-session course to give you an opportunity to explore with other parents how the teenage years can be a time for the whole family to ‘thrive rather than just survive.

More details can be found in the Raising Teens With Confidence letter to be issued to S1-S4 pupils on Tuesday morning at registration.
