Pre Eleven Plus Behaviour

Some ideas on keeping happy before the eleven plus.

Communicate with your eleven plus child. Be gentle with yourself. Avoid other competitive parents.

Try, as best as you can, to help your child to enjoy as much restful sleep as possible and practical. Strive to enjoy the same luxury for yourself!

Go easy on strange foods. Keep it simple and straight forward.

Help your child feel good.

Keep family life as normal as possible. You don’t need to close off the rest of the family.

Help your child to try to achieve positive outcomes.

Challenge unacceptable behaviour.

Work together in the hard and low times. Try not to take it out on your child.

Work towards developing an independent child. (You won’t be there in the actual examination!)
