The ability to write confidently is an important skill that children need throughout their primary and secondary school education. However, many children leave school without the ability to do this, with as much as 25% of primary and secondary school aged children leaving school with noliteracy skills at all.
Over the years, I have noticed that many children don’t know how to write appropriately – in a structural sense. There are often:
– Missing fullstops at the end of their sentence
– No capitalisation at the beginning of sentences, or of proper nouns.
– Lots of grammatical errors, too.
– Many spelling mistakes.
And many children don’t like reading through their work, either, because English is often a subject that they do not enjoy. Does this sound familiar?

Class teachers don’t always have enough time
If your child attends a state school, they are being prepared for the SATs in Year 6, which is months after schools have been offered for grammar and independent schools. Additionally, the curriculum isn’t tailored for the 11 Plus exams, so there will be gaps in your child’s learning for the 11 Plus unless they get some additional support that is specifically focused at passing the 11 Plus exams.
It can be quite a shock for many parents to find that their child is doing well in school but get an entirely different result when they take an 11 Plus English mock test!
It’s often not always down to poor teaching or low standards at schools. Class sizes are the largest they’ve ever been, so most teachers don’t have enough time to give children the detailed feedback in their English comprehension or creative writing (if they get set these at all!). So, it’s no surprise that parents find that there are a whole host of areas that their child needs to make improvements on – fast!
The lack of regular detailed amd consistent feedback can result in children repeatedly making the same mistakes over and over again.

Gadgets have taken over reading!
These days, children don’t read as much as they should. Before the emergence of technology, reading was a common pastime amongst children, but I hear parents complaining about how difficult it can be to encourage their child to read because of technological distractions. Gadgets, it seems, have taken over the free time of many children!
Many children struggle to come up with ideas when writing, they struggle with basic grammar rules and don’t seem to have a framework to work with when writing. It’s a cumulative effect of many issues, which is why we created the Geek School Tutoring’s range of writing improvement courses on our sister site, the11plusessay.co.uk.
