What happens during the free initial assessment?
Your child will come and complete an age-appropriate exam to identify any gaps in their learning. If required, we can also get your child to complete an earlier year group exam to evaluate if they are carrying any gaps forward from their previous year of learning at school. It also gives you a chance to come and visit the premises, and for us to answer any questions you may have.
Will my child be able to directly transfer their learning from Education support hub to their school?
At Education Support Hub, in addition to numerous teaching techniques, we use schemes that are used by schools within the Newry & Mourne area. Schemes include Busy Ants Maths and New Heinemann Maths. This familiarity will give your child confidence to grow within the classroom, as we not only cover gaps in their learning but pre-teach topics before they are delivered in the classroom. This is a proven intervention method that gives your child a headstart in their learning.
How do I receive feedback from my child's progress?
At ESH we understand the importance of tracking your child’s progress. We are extremely approachable and can communicate with you via informal chats, email or telephone (whatever suits your schedule). In addition to this, termly written reports detailing progress will be provided.
Why are children taught in groups of 4?
The whole purpose of ESH is to aide your child with the tools to reach their potential in the classroom. Working in a group of 4 mirrors a classroom environment, and gives the child confidence being amongst their peers. The initial assessment informs ESH of your child’s learning needs, and consequently differentiated work and tasks are distributed in regards to these results (children may be covering the same topic, but will be completing different challenges).
What age groups do we teach?
We provide specialised tuition in Newry for children in Key Stage 1 (P1-P3) and Key Stage 2 (P4-P7).
Do I have to commit to ESH for a certain amount of time?
There are no contracts with Education Support Hub! The main reason for this is that after a certain time your child may no longer require intervention from us.
What is covered within the 80 minute teaching sessions?
As we provide individually tailored learning plans, the needs of the children will dictate what is covered within the 80 minutes. Planning for each session will be informed from constant assessment and building on previous lessons. Grown-ups will always be kept informed of what areas we are covering. There is also the option of preteaching (teaching a subject before it is delivered in school). Come see why we are Newry’s Premier Tuition Centre.
