Or how they will perform on the day/cope with the pressure etc.
DD's teacher in Yr 4 advised that we should get a tutor lined up if we wanted to try for the selective schools near us (North London). In Yr 5 DD's teacher told another mum that approx 50% of the class will be sitting these entrance tests (although only a handful get in).
So I think that in our case the teachers are well aware that tutoring takes place for NVR, VR, English and maths but I don't know if they are aware of the specific topics covered by the various tutors in the area. As the class teacher changes with each year, it must be difficult for them to see how much improvement int he DCs is down to the tutor?
I'm not sure if I've helped...
