Preparing for the 11 plus exam can be a tough and emotional process to go through.
When anyone puts their heart and soul into anything, if the desired outcome is not achieved, then it is going to be an emotional time.
We believe that you need to be helping your child emotionally throughout the process, to monitor how they are feeling by talking to them and then also making sure that they are secure in the message that they are receiving from you.
THE MESSAGE TO YOUR CHILD WHEN THEY ARE STARTING OUT
THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS
LEAD UP TO EXAMS
Throughout the process, make sure your child is balancing work with rest and play (sports, hobbies, yoga etc).
If your child has many after-school activities, you may find that just for this year, you consider keeping the core activities, to provide the necessary time for this course. It is also very important to ensure that there is time to relaxation.
We believe that the message should be positive, and reinforce the effort put into preparing for the 11 plus rather than focusing on the outcome.
We believe that the effort put into this course will help the next stage of your child’s school career in both English and Maths.
We also believe that focusing on the practice of working consistently towards a goal should be praised.
We wish all our students the best of luck!
