Learning at home: What we're doing to support teachers

We’re continuing to support teachers, parents and children amid the latest lockdown in the UK.

Primary and secondary schools are closed to most pupils, so we've tailored our offer to support teachers' provision of remote learning. Collections of educational resources on the BBC Bitesize and BBC Teach websites are available to support online learning at home for pupils in Years 1 to 9, and those studying for GCSEs and Nationals.

In addition, from Monday 11 January lessons and programmes will broadcast on TV - on BBC Two and CBBC - as well as on iPlayer, providing support for children unable to access online resources.

How can I access this content?

  • Online - Bitesize - Learning at Home offers a suite of engaging learning resources for children aged 5 to fifteen. These online lessons are full of videos, quizzes and practice activities to help students keep on track when learning at home. You can use the lessons to introduce ideas for the first time, or as refreshers.

  • TV - Programming for primary pupils is on CBBC between 09:00 and 12:00 each weekday. Programmes for secondary school pupils are on BBC Two, between 13:00 and 15:00.

  • iPlayer - All programmes are available to catch-up, on-demand on iPlayer.

For primary and secondary pupils in Scotland, there will be dedicated programming on BBC Scotland from 10:00, every weekday for about two hours.

For children studying in Welsh, there is bilingual support on the BBC Bitesize website, with activities to support home learning. Go to the "change language" button at the top of the web page and select the Welsh language to access it.

Pupils in Northern Ireland can go to the BBC Northern Ireland website to find more information to help their studies.

As always, our Bitesize pages for GCSE and Nationals/Highers students features comprehensive learning guides arranged by exam board and subject topic.
