As we know, 'Pupil Premium' students are most at risk of academic disadvantage caused by the disruption to schooling and other factors. (Education Endowment Foundation). Love Literacy joins the proverbial village; committing to supporting students, particularly with core subjects.
There is extensive high-quality evidence demonstrating the potential of one-to-one and small group tuition […] to support pupils who are falling behind in their learning,’ according to the EEF.
By providing additional support, schools will close the attainment gaps, which have been broadened by the pandemic lockdown. Through intervention, our most vulnerable, disaffected, poverty-stricken young people will be supported through virtual classes.
Love Literacy will ‘boost progress by up to +5 months’ (EEF) and work alongside schools to equip students with the academic competence needed to improve their life-chances.
This perfectly positions Love Literacy to provide the catch-up support recommended by the National Tutoring Programme.
At Year 10 Lulu was on grade 3 and predicted a grade 4. […] Zara started with Lulu from scratch and was able to identify her weakness, hence building on her strength. By the end, Zara had build a very confident child. Lulu surprised herself with a grade 8 in English Language and English Literature..
I have just received my results today and I am happy to say that I got a 9 in both English Lit and English Language. I am ever so grateful for your help and I would like to say that my grade 9 is all down to you.
As a typical teenager, I was reserved about spending my Saturday mornings doing more work. However, I am so grateful I was pushed to do more and in doing so, I achieved more. I gained a grade 5 in Maths, grade 7 in English Language and a grade 8 in English Literature. My gratitude will be everlasting.
Love Literacy was instrumental in the success of one of our
students who arrived to the UK as an unaccompanied 15 year
old; he had never been to school and couldn't hold a pen. [...]
With her enthusiasm, expert knowledge of literacy and warm
nature, Zara was successful in building on the foundations
that had been laid. She provided one to one lessons,
accommodating the pupil's every need- not just academically
but emotionally and socially. He left us confident enough to
hold a basic conversation and with enough literacy to secure
a part-time job after leaving school.
