It may seem like every second week your primary school is testing students to get them ready for the new curriculum being phased in this year. If you’ve had a look at the new standards, it might seem as if this year requires your child to use more reasoning skills in order to do well.
For our students sitting the new GCSE exams in 2017, the watchword is “rigour”. Engaging teenagers in their learning through fun activities, challenging tasks, personal tuition and guidance equals a winning formula when it comes to them sitting their all-important examinations.

A recent article in The Telegraph led with the headline, “Private tutoring is abhorrent says private school head.” (read it here) The position taken by the piece was that if a child needs tutoring to get into a school, then the school is probably not for them. I agree – to a point.
How old were you when you started school? I was five, having had my birthday in August. Back then nobody really went to school any earlier so I was very much the youngest in my class.
Are you one of those parents who, without realising it, has been quietly mulling over the comments made either in your child’s report at the end of last term or at the parent teacher meetings you recently attended?
There have been lots of headlines created by the press about the forthcoming changes to the UK National Curriculum – but how does the average parent find out the facts?
With GCSE exams around the corner, it’s time for a final push. Energy levels are running low and motivation is getting harder to find.
n the recent change to KS2 English SATs, a bigger focus has been placed on spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG). Working in a school, I can’t help but notice the lack of immediacy when it comes to corrections of SPAG errors.
