“In all honesty, the sessions are excellent and the structure and pace means the children progress well. Most importantly, they love them! Having the additional 1-1 sessions each week has greatly helped. It gave children the opportunity to ask questions and develop their learning. And in times of budget cuts and uncertainty, it’s something which we had no problem funding again this year.”

Lesson content

Designed by maths teachers

Narrow teaching timeframes don’t always allow maths topics to be revisited, even if pupils lack understanding or confidence.

Pupils enrolled in Third Space Learning tutoring sessions benefit from a curriculum developed by former primary and secondary teachers, drawing on their years of classroom experience to create scaffolded lessons that close learning gaps.

Regular reporting

It can be challenging and time consuming for schools to track each pupil’s maths progress and plug their individual gaps.

Third Space Learning programmes give teachers quick and easy access to the content pupils cover in each session and the progress they make over time, helping to understand individual impact as well as inform their own class teaching.

Lesson content

An interactive classroom

Not only is it important that maths topics covered are specific to each pupil, but their learning environment must be tailored to their individual needs.

Pupils get the chance to build a rapport with the same Third Space Learning tutor week on week, encouraging confidence in verbalising their maths reasoning with someone that they trust.
