When we (today’s parents) went to school, our school reports generally showed a mark out of 100, sometimes a place in class, and simple comments like ‘could try harder’, ‘progressing well’, or ‘a pleasure to teach’. While they seemed easy to understand, they generally oversimplified things to the point of not being very helpful at all. Today schools tend to report on achievement against set criteria and try to include at least one tip on how your child could improve. Sometimes, however, it can be difficult to interpret the statements and understand how well your child is tracking in terms of their future GCSE exam grades.
At NumberWorks’nWords, we work alongside local schools to understand their teaching and reporting methods. Our tutors are completely familiar with the English and maths national curricula and the achievement criteria. We know our NumberWorks’nWords private GCSE tuition works.
We can help you interpret a school report and we offer a free no-obligation assessment, including a free sample session for your child. Following the assessment we have a parent consultation where the results are analysed and discussed. We will recommend a way forward that will help your child be the best s/he can be. You and child will both gain a clearer picture of any weaknesses, strengths and knowledge gaps.
