Third Space Learning KS2 Maths Intervention Programmes
Interventions that have already helped 50,000 pupils in the UK to catch up and progress faster in maths
…in times of budget cuts and uncertainty, it’s something which we had no problem funding again this year.
Assistant Head, London
Making the decision to begin a maths intervention programme at KS2, especially in a core subject like maths, is never one to be taken lightly.
There is a wide variety of primary school intervention programmes available which are equally varied in cost, effort required from the school, and success rates.
And with budgets squeezed, rather than spend money on expensive externally managed intervention programmes many schools now seek to resource their maths interventions with existing staff. This is not without its pitfalls – they eat into staff time both in the preparation for the sessions and in the running of the intervention programmes, and often the people teaching the additional maths are not necessarily the best qualified to do this.
The result is that staff are increasingly overworked and children don’t make the progress they could be making.
That’s why more and more schools who want to guarantee pupils success in maths are choosing one of Third Space Learning’s maths intervention programmes.
We teach thousands of primary school pupils a week in a one-to-one environment with a tutor, using online lessons drawing on the principles of maths mastery and the KS2 national curriculum.
Our initial assessment diagnoses individual learning gaps and suggests a best-fit sequence of lessons for each pupil, and we then report on their progress during each lesson. All you have to do is make sure they show up!
Why choose Third Space Learning to lead your primary maths interventions?
Flexible, affordable pricing options to match your needs
Depending on the number of pupils for whom you are considering interventions, you may find many intervention solutions too costly to pursue, even with a significant proportion of these pupils being in receipt of Pupil Premium.
Third Space Learning prices its one-to-one maths intervention programmes specifically with the goal of being excellent value for money; 65% of the 7000 children we teach every week are in receipt of Pupil Premium, their school using the allocation to help them improve in maths.
For schools considering non-Pupil Premium children for interventions, we are also happy to agree a pricing plan that works with your budget. We believe that cost shouldn’t be a barrier to getting children the additional maths support they need, which is why we provide our highly-effective one-to-one intervention sessions online.
Progress and impact reporting are readily available on each of our intervention programmes
If you’re going to be spending money on an external intervention, you want to be able to measure its performance and impact clearly and easily.
Third Space Learning provides schools with weekly progress reports per pupil, making intervention impact available at-a-glance.
We also carry out an initial diagnostic test at the start of every term to act as a benchmark for pupil progress, and give schools access to our set of pre- and post-topic in-class assessments free of charge, so they can judge our impact for themselves.

Our maths intervention programmes have school-wide benefits for KS1 and KS2
Where possible an intervention programme should extend its positive effects out beyond just the students on intervention.
Our one-to-one Maths interventions are aimed at single cohorts of pupils (on average 10 pupils per year group). But we also provide our schools with access to our Third Space Maths Hub, an online toolkit filled with high-quality resources that are freely available for every teacher and pupil in the school to use.
Your chosen maths intervention should dovetail as closely as possible with what pupils are learning in class, and ideally will be adaptable to your school’s calculation policy. Third Space resources are aligned to the White Rose Maths framework, with slides for every day teaching as well as resources with a specific focus on fluency, reasoning, problem solving, and diagnostic assessment.
We encourage pupils to become better mathematicians
Our expert tutors and mastery-based KS2 maths interventions help pupils develop confidence and a growth mindset in lessons, which translates to their learning as a whole.
Moreover pupils are taught in a bespoke primary focused online classroom with an engaging, interactive maths experience that increases their enthusiasm for maths as much as their abilities in it.
We have a proven record of success
Since 2013 we have helped 50,000 pupils in the UK improve their maths abilities and confidence, across over 1700 schools. On average, Third Space pupils make seven months of progress in 14 weeks – a greater acceleration than any other service on the market.
We’re proud of how positively our schools speak about us, so we’ve included a few of their thoughts below for you to see just how broad a range of impacts Third Space could have for your school!
