Starting the new school year after the summer vacation can bring with it a few hurdles for children – whether it’s getting back into their school routine or adjusting to having homework again – this time of year is often a mixture of nerves and excitement.
Our UK based parent company, Explore Learning, recently carried out some research into how parents and children feel about going ‘back to school’. Take a look at the top eight biggest obstacles that British children face.

50% of parents said that getting up early was the biggest obstacle that children face when returning to school. This was followed by children’s concerns about having a new teacher at 43%, closely followed by getting back into their school routine.
