Hi there! I have just started year 11 and am interested in working smart rather than hard. It has come to my attention that copying notes is of little value as you don’t take in the information. However would taking notes whilst watching videos be beneficial. There are many great video tutors like hegartymaths and mygcsescience which are excellent but is taking notes whilst watching beneficial?

I'd say so. As long as you process the information and write it down in key points rather than just copying what they say. For maths and science, application is everything so practice questions are the best way to study smart rather than hard.
I'm in year 11 as well and so this advice is from what I've heard from countless GCSE videos and people I know who did well in Year 10 mocks.
I hope this was helpful, good luck!
