Many children struggle to thrive in English. In July 2017, 39% of 11-year-olds did not reach ‘the expected standard’ in English for their age group and were not ready to begin their secondary English education. Furthermore, over 40,000 more students may need to re-sit their English GCSE next year than last year, after failing to achieve the required grade 4 in the reformed exams.
Core skills are the foundations which will help your child to feel confident – for example, phonics, reading, spelling. Applied skills take these a step further – for instance, expressing ideas verbally or in writing. These skills are not just for the classroom and key to exam success, but also prepare your child for adult life!
