Monthly membership: The first pack will be sent to your child within a week of you signing up. After that the packs get posted first class on the 7th of each month.
Weekly membership: The first pack will be sent within 24 hours of signing up. After that, the packs are posted 1st class by Thursday every week.
If you have a Bespoke membership, then a short assessment will be sent to your child with the first pack. The assessments are designed to look fun and unthreatening. The assessment should be returned with the next pack for marking. Any questions that your child gets wrong or misses out will be sent out as topic packs over the coming months.
If you have a bespoke membership then your child will take a small test and they will be sent topics which they need to practice. If you have budget or bonus membership then the topics will be chosen according to your child’s age and ability level as stated by you (e.g, average/above/below)
If you have a Bonus or Bespoke membership and you return the work to the freepost address, then it will be marked by a qualified and experienced Maths teacher. It is the aim of Maths Club by Post to give lots and lots of praise to build up children who are not confident so this is reflected in the marking. When mistakes have been made, we try to give guidance on where the child has gone wrong, in line with best practice in education.
If you have a Budget membership, the answers will be emailed to you once a month.
If you find that the work is too easy or too hard for your child, then just email [email protected] and your child will be put forward or put back a few on the scheme of work. If you have a Bespoke membership, then your child will only receive work that they couldn't do in the test.
If you have selected monthly membership you will have a week or more for your child to try the first pack. After that, then the first payment will come out on the following 1st of the month in advance ready for the next posting.
If you have joined with a weekly subscription, then your first pack will be posted immediately, and your payment will come out the following Monday and then every Monday after that.
If you sent your child's work for marking and you haven't received it back with the next pack, it's because it wasn't received in time for marking. That may be because it's lost in the post or if you sent it late - don't worry, it will be marked for next time.
