Q & A's

Q Are the teachers qualified school teachers?

AAll our Maths and English teachers are qualified school teachers

Q Does my child's homework get marked?

AAll work is marked and gone over weekly. Your child will hand in their story homework at the beginning of the Maths lesson. The teacher will then mark the Maths homework and go over any problems then set your child some more work. While the children are working the teacher can then mark the story.

Q If my child cannot do something will the teacher
      be able to explain it to me?

AYes of course. The teachers are here to help your child and to explain and show them how to do types of questions.

Q Why do we pay a deposit?

AThe deposit is payment for your child's last lesson. We require at least 7 days notice before your child's last lesson. Once we know your child is leaving they do not pay for their last lesson. If notice is not given then you will lose your deposit. The deposit is non-refundable.

Q Do I still have to pay if my child is absent?

AYou only pay when your child attends a lesson. If your child is absent please telephone the office to cancel your child's lesson.

Q Can I pay monthly?

ANo, you pay weekly as your child attends. If they are not there then you do not pay.

Q Shall I give the payment to my child?

AYes, we collect the money and tick your child's name off of the register. This also helps children to appreciate money and gives them some responsibility.

Q Is the homework compulsory?

AYes, all the children get Maths and English homework. This usually consists of a few sums for Maths, a story for English, times tables and for Year 4's and above 20 spellings plus the meanings.

Q Are you open during school holidays
      and half terms?

AWe close for 2 weekends over Christmas and New Year and one weekend over Easter. We are open throughout the summer holidays and half terms. Whenever we are going to close for a weekend we send a reminder note out to all our pupils.

Q What happens if we go on holiday for 4 weeks
      or more?

AWe can only hold a place for a maximum of three weekends. If you are going away for longer we require notice of leaving (this is at least 7 Days before the child's last lesson). When you return from holiday please call us and we can reinstate your child.

Q Can my child just have an hour of Maths?

ANot with us. Our lessons are for 2 hours and cover both Maths and English.

QWhat do I do if I want my child to start
     your lessons?

APlease telephone the office. We can then inform you of any times we have available and discuss a start date. Please do not turn up at the Centre. Your child has to have an appointment to start the lessons.

Q Can my child just have Verbal and Non-Verbal
      Reasoning training?

AAll children at the Centre attend for Maths and English. We then assess the Year 5 pupils for Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning. Depending on how your child fares on this assessment determines whether or not we give them weekly Verbal or Non-Verbal Reasoning. Year 4 children are also given a Verbal Reasoning and General Knowledge paper during their lesson to see where weaknesses are for future 11+ Training
