Ensure this is the only kind of ‘summer slide’ your child/teen experiences!
By September most pupils will have lost almost six months of school. Do you need an easy 5-point plan that tells school exactly what they now need to focus on to support your child/teen?
My suggested 5 points would be:
- Classroom / Exam Arrangements.
But if you have other priorities (e.g. memory, revision, visual processing, attention, sensory, coordination etc.) just let me know.
Present their new teacher(s) with high-quality evidence and a 5 point plan featuring 25 easy-to-implement recommendations, specific to your child’s exact needs.
Find out their reading age, spelling age, handwriting and arithmetic age. What is going well and what do school now need to do to boost their confidence and make them happy to be back?
What you will get:
- An hour’s in-depth chat before-hand for you to voice worries and observations (either on the phone or on the day)
- Approximately 1.5 hours of very expensive, standardised assessments (ideally half before lunch and half afterwards)
- An hour analysing their work and reading reports (before-hand or whilst they have lunch)
- An hour’s verbal feedback / Q and A afterwards, based on findings
- An easy-to-read report showing the results, important findings and 25 tailored recommendations, specific to your child’s needs (under 5 headings, for example, reading, spelling, writing, maths and classroom/exam arrangements)

Why so much time spent with you as a parent?
Parents always know their child best, but schools very rarely listen to them. But I will listen and then can write it down. I am pretty sure that you will have learned even more over the last few months about what they can and can’t do, what causes them anxiety and how that plays out. For example:
Most kids/teens have been exhausted from the hamster wheel of school and will have needed the break, but six months is a long time.
Going back in September there is talk of extra catch up money for small group sessions and one-to-one tutoring in school. But will they know what your child really needs? And how do you convince them anyway?
I have been pondering this and I think the answer is three-fold:
- easy to understand data from expensive, high quality standardised tests
- easy to implement recommendations, based on more than a decade of teaching children with a kaleidoscope of needs
- it all being written down by a highly qualified and experienced professional and therefore ‘official’.
Still not sure?
Feedback from a parent this month, that they received from their child’s Head Teacher:
“Thanks for sending this through. Holly’s report is one of the most useful ones I have ever read. It is very thorough and from an educational point of view gives lots of resources and strategies we can all use to help.”
