Coaching for selective tests

Our policy is that no teaching or coaching for selective tests should occur in Birmingham's primary schools.

This policy is important because coaching can be counter-productive, as over-achievement in the entry tests may be against the long-term interests of children whose ability may be more limited than their score would suggest.

We have asked headteachers to provide support within the context of the overall educational development of the children concerned.

There is useful information about preparing your child to sit the selective test available on the West Midlands Grammar Schools website.
