Parent information

Primary school children need 9-11 hours of sleep each night and teenagers need about 9.

Not getting enough sleep is common in school children. If your child's sleep is disturbed at night, it makes it harder for them to function during the day. It also raises the risk of problems with behaviour and learning. Most sleep problems can be treated or managed.
