The short answer to this is: yes. The SATs are compulsory end-of-Key-Stage tests that all children in state-funded Primary schools must sit in Year 2 and Year 6. But don’t worry because the real question you should be asking is: should my child be concerned about the SATs? And the answer to that question is a resounding: NO!
Who should take a full assessment?
Our full online assessment evaluates every area of your child's education from the comfort of your own home. A great way to identify areas of strength and weakness, the assessments are designed from the ground up by our Education Assessment experts. We can then best formulate an action plan for the private teaching sessions to most efficiently fill gaps and build confidence.
Assessments are also a great way to practice the endurance needed for entry exams and for your child to become accustomed to the process, helping them perform better in future.
I have been a teacher in Primary schools around London for more than a decade and this was always a contentious issue. Some children love an extra, independent challenge; some parents demand it; some children simply cannot cope. What does the LAW say about homework?
Running a school is expensive and schools in England get money from the government based on how many children they have on roll. At the time of writing, each child registered in a primary school is worth £3,750. This is why many schools offer parent tours. But let’s be realistic, at a very basic level, your child is valuable to the school, so these open days are a sales pitch. So, as with any sales pitch, you need to be a savvy shopper. Here are five questions you have to ask when on a school tour.
The pace and activities are designed around your child's needs and interests with a focus on strengthening weaknesses and building confidence. After all, we want your child to enjoy learning.
Reports are provided after each session via email to track progress and help integrate the tutoring with your child's formal education.
Often the children will be keen to share their progress too!
We understand that learning goals can be short-term exam prep or long-term learning to keep ahead of the pack, we can create a custom contract just for you.
