Revision emails

This video shares a collaborative, whole-school approach to revision that engages parents and children.

In this video, Dr Katharine Hutchinson, Director of Professional Learning and Development at Cambridgeshire Educational Trust (secondary), shares how she trialled a daily revision email to parents before it was adopted as a whole-school approach.

Katharine shares how the approach moved from an individual pilot to be used more widely. She reflects on the lessons learned along the way and the need for collaboration in the creation of effective multiple-choice questions that would lead to learning. She considers the benefits so far for students, parents, teachers and leaders.
