Covid-19 halts our work in schools

Our one-to-one work is temporarily suspended


Our important work supporting disadvantaged children is, unfortunately, on hold due to the Covid-19 measures in place. This is a very sad situation for us as well as the children we support. We want to get back to our schools as soon as possible and continue the brilliant work we do helping children improve their literacy skills.

We work with some of the most disadvantaged children in London and Manchester.  These children struggle with reading, writing, spelling and more.  Our intervention gives children a lifeline; they have opportunities to thrive and to develop skills that are needed to turn them into ‘readers’ and ‘writers’.  Children have work that is tailored to their needs and they are able to work at their own pace.  Children see how they are doing and learning is built on session by session by our excellent tutors.  We love hearing stories of how children grow in confidence.

We feel we will be needed more than ever as soon as schools resume.  The children we support are falling further and further behind and we want to be ready to jump back in and pick up where we left off.

In the meantime, we have been able to offer support to parents and carers who are home schooling their children.  We know it is not easy thing to do and understanding phonics and navigating the phonemes needed to be taught can be a minefield.  That is why we have set up a Home Learning section on our website that provides support and ideas to parents.  You can find information on phonics, lists of the best picture book stories and free downloads with helpful activities and games that you can do in your home that will be fun and engaging for your child.
