Charlie was referred to The Children’s Literacy Charity when she was six years old. Charlie’s teacher felt she needed one-to-one support as she the teacher was having great difficulties responding to her learning needs in a classroom context.


The Children’s Literacy Charity believe the biggest impact on a child’s literacy development comes from the support of parents, carers and supportive adults. We provide a range of resources to help you to help your child to overcome their difficulties with literacy.


The educational, social and economic environment is changing. The Children’s Literacy Charity is committed to being part of the literacy solution. By setting up a Literacy Lab — in the school or community — we can provide individualised literacy tuition that builds skills and confidence.

Tom’s Story

Tom is now in Year 10 and studying for his GCSE’s. Tom attended a Springboard centre (what we now call Literacy Lab) at Kingswood School when he was in Year 3. Tom believes his time with us gave him a passion for studying English. His ambitions of studing at LSE to become a Spin Doctor are directly attributable to the time he spent working with our tutors.
