Back to school: What we're doing to support teachers

We’re continuing to support teachers, parents and children as schools open to all pupils.

Over the last twelve months we've tailored our offer to support teachers' provision of remote learning. These collections of educational resources on the BBC Bitesize and BBC Teach websites will remain available to support learning whether at home or at school.

In addition, lessons and programmes are continuing to broadcast on TV - on the CBBC channel as well as on iPlayer - providing support for children and schools unable to access online resources.

How can I access this content?

  • Online - Bitesize - This Term's Topics offers simple-to-follow lessons and videos for pupils aged four to 14. Keep learning with short films, quizzes and practice activities that deliver this term’s key topics in the classroom or at home. As always, our Bitesize pages for GCSE and Nationals/Highers students feature comprehensive learning guides arranged by exam board and subject topic. For children studying in Welsh, there is also bilingual support on the BBC Bitesize website. Go to the 'change language' button at the top of the web page and select the Welsh language to access it.

  • TV - Programming for primary pupils broadcasts on the CBBC channel between 09:00 and 12:00 each school day. This new Bitesize Learning Zone draws on a rich archive of content from BBC Education, CBBC and the BBC Natural History Unit and is designed for either classroom or home use. Bitesize Learning Zone has weekly themes that teachers can use alongside their lessons (including animals, science, wellbeing and creativity). From Monday, 7 June 2021, Bitesize Learning Zone also welcomes new episodes of Bitesize Daily Primary focusing on maths and English. The programmes will include lessons from teachers and will also see a dedicated well-being day, designed to encourage good mental and physical health. You will find full broadcast schedules for Bitesize Learning Zone below.

  • iPlayer - All programmes are also available to catch-up on for 30 days, on-demand on iPlayer.
