Clio Service Brake Efficiency help

Hi Im new to the forum so please bare with me.
I took my daughters clio for mot yesterday and it failed.

Brakes Failure:RBT Service Brake Efficency:46%
Service Brake:efficiency below requirements (3.7.B.7)
Offside rear brake recording little or no effort (3.7.B.5a).

now i gather the service brake is the foot brake!
So what i need to know is how do i rectify the problems as its in for a retest on monday and need it to pass as my daughters taking her driving test in the car next week.

i know hardly anything about cars but luckily my hubby does but hes unsure with the service brake.
Handbrake was fine nothing reported on mot regarding that.

the car info is a 1997 Clio RL automatic.
please can someone advise what we need to do to sort this. many thanks
