A number of children have been complaining about feeling tired during the day, even during the morning lessons, and have said that they are going to bed quite late.
We recommend that your child is in bed and sleep by 8pm to ensure they have a full night of sleep, ensuring they are ready for the next day. This will help them to concentrate more in class and get more out of their education.
Recent research has also shown that children aged 8-11 who spend less than two hours per day looking at screens for pleasure (such as TV, tablets and computer games) statistically do better in tests of mental ability. The same research also recommends that children have a minimum of 9 hours sleep but should sleep between 9 and 11 hours per night to ensure their best performance.
