One to one tuition to help your pupils grow in confidence and catch up in maths
100% of the Year 4 and 5 pupils on the programme achieved Age Related Expectations or higher. It’s clear to see that Third Space has been having an impact.

Regular assessment and reporting
Free headset for each pupil

You choose which Year 3-5 pupils you'd like to support with additional catch up maths teaching.
We use it to support Pupil Premium pupils but also for any other pupils that we feel need it. For us, it’s about doing all we can to support the children that need it the most.
Lessons ensure Year 3-5 content is secure and misconceptions are addressed before Year 6.
It’s a really helpful step heading into year 6 because now it means they have that confidence to go and try it, which at the start of year 6 is very valuable. We’ve certainly agreed it’s a good thing this is happening in year 5 as by year 6 it’s almost too late.
Lessons are chosen to plug individual knowledge gaps across the Year 1-5 curriculum.
The children gain a great deal from a different approach from the way they are taught in lessons. The one to one tutoring means that it can be completely personal - tailored to their needs.
Tutors work one to one with each pupil to build confidence and a love for maths early on.
The opportunity for the children to apply their numeracy skills in a safe environment where they are not afraid to fail in front of their peers. Very good for increasing confidence and this is demonstrated in class lessons where less able mathematicians are beginning to contribute more ideas.
Pupil and time slot selection
Whole school resources
You decide which pupils to sign up to the catch up intervention programme and choose a weekly time slot. For small groups up to 15 pupils can receive a one to one lesson at once. For larger groups we recommend choosing two or more timeslots.
Each pupil begins with an initial assessment to diagnose their individual learning gaps and identify the best sequence of maths lessons for each pupil. This can be done at any point before their first individual session.
Lessons take place in our interactive online classroom and pupils communicate with their personal tutor via a shared screen and headset. We'll send out headsets free of charge before your first session.
Senior leaders and class teachers are kept up to date with the Key Stage 2 national curriculum topics covered and progress made each week. Longer term progress is mapped over the term, year and end of Key Stage.
Unlimited access to all Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 resources is included at no additional cost. This means you can target spending on individual pupils whilst still raising maths attainment for every child in your school.
We love the flexibility offered by Third Space Learning – we use it mainly as a catch-up intervention, but also to pre-teach topics or to extend our Greater Depth children. It is great to be able to start the year with the diagnostic assessment to identify knowledge gaps.

It's really good for those kids that are "invisible", the ones that are quiet and less confident. Because it's one-to-one there's absolutely nowhere for them to hide. It’s fascinating to hear them talking it through. I think you've got really quite talented teachers at the other end.
Maths Leader, Westfield Primary School, Bath
The children love it and it really supports what they do in class, filling in their gaps in learning and building their confidence.

Excellent one to one sessions are helping build the children’s confidence and abilities. An extensive selection of worksheets and lessons available on the Maths Hub.
Teaching Assistant, West Ashtead Primary School, Surrey
Third Space provides a regular and reliable session of 1-to-1 support. Their confidence is raised and as a result their outcomes are improved. It is astonishing to see how well children build relationships with their tutors and how the tutors adapt their teaching to the child’s interests.
Headteacher, The Dawnay School, Surrey
The children love it; lessons can be matched specifically and linked to class lessons. Children make good progress and it supports learning in a different way to class work. We particularly find boys make accelerated progress.
Deputy Headteacher, Giles Brook Primary School, Milton Keynes
The children respond really well to Third Space Learning. As a school we see impact not just in the learning of the session and over time, but in the enjoyment, confidence and love of Maths.
Deputy Headteacher, Belmont Community Primary School, Grantham
One Year 4 pupil used to cry when they came into school for maths, now they’re much happier at school after using Third Space; their confidence has increased. All the kids at school want to do Third Space, they don’t see it as a catch up programme.
