An effective workspace needs to start with the basics – a sturdy work surface, work lamp and comfortable chair – one with adjustable height, that’s ergonomic and can be pushed under the desk when not in use. It’s hard to concentrate when things get messy, so encourage kids to keep their stationery tidy. If there’s not enough room for a storage unit, desktop organisers and trays make it easy to keep things neat.

David, 9, is home-schooled so he shares his workspace with his parents in their tiny motorhome. The desk doubles as a dining table, so it’s important that it can be tidied and switched between uses easily. “It’s mostly Mom and Dad who teach me, but I have an online tutor too, then I get to see all my friends in our virtual classroom,” says David.
