The government of Wales judges the performance of their primary and secondary schools slightly differently from those in England. While they do still measure progress and mastery levels with GCSE results, schools are also evaluated according to wider criteria, which includes the quality of learning and teaching, as well as wellbeing. There are four colour-coded categories that indicate the level of support the government believes each school needs. Schools that are ranked Green are considered to be the best performing. Specifically, the colours indicate:

  • Green - Highly effective
  • Yellow - Effective and aware of areas that need improvement
  • Amber - In need of improvement and assistance identifying how to improve
  • Red - In need of significant improvement

If you discover your child's school has received a score lower than green, you may want to have them work with a professional tutor until the school is able to regain its footing. First Tutors offers parents a centralised location to locate highly qualified personal tutors in the Cardiff area. Your child's personal tutor has a significant advantage over their classroom teacher because a tutor is able to spend more individual time with your child. This is important because no two children learn in the same way. When a teacher is confronted by a classroom of learners, they must do their best to deliver the information that will make it most readily accessible to the greatest number of students. While this can work well, students who do not learn well with the delivery method chosen by the teacher may begin to fall behind. Instead of being stuck in a one-size-fits-all teaching methodology, your child's personal tutor can work with your child to discover their unique learning style, academic opportunities and strengths, and even their personal interests in order to create the most effective learning strategy possible for them.

No matter which primary school your child attends in the Cardiff area, First Tutors understands exactly how important these formative years are. Even if your child is enrolled in one of the best schools in the city, they may still find themselves struggling with the abundance of new material they are presented with.

These formative years are when the fundamental concepts of numeracy and literacy are introduced. It is upon these skills that all of your child's future school work will be built. If they are unable to read on level and incrementally improve their numeracy skills, they will likely struggle throughout their secondary years and even into university or the workforce.

Working with a primary tutor can help give your child the educational support and guidance they need to achieve their academic potential and to be fully prepared for the rigours of secondary school.

Once your child enters secondary school, their focus will begin to shift towards the upcoming GCSEs. While these will be a few years down the road, your child should begin preparing right away. The importance of these exams cannot be overstated, as the scores your child receives will directly impact their academic choices going forward.

In addition to working with your child on subject areas that need more focus, a personal tutor can also work with students to develop key educational skills that are applicable across all subjects. Some of these include independent study strategies, essay writing and revision, time management, organisation, and testing techniques. Many of these skills are not intuitive for all students, but having a professional tutor show your child how to improve them can be invaluable.
