The COVID-19 Crisis:
School Services to Raise Attainment

Tuition | Coaching | Mentorship

Whilst the UK acted in the interest of safety in closing schools, this has resulted in students receiving varying levels of educational input, dependent largely on families’ abilities to engage.

A lost generation?

Subsequently, 'Pupil Premium' students are at risk of further disadvantage (Education Endowment Foundation) as a result of approximately 6 months out of formal schooling. The disproportionate deaths of BAME (gov.uk) communities raises further challenges in terms of the emotional impact of grief on learners, thus their capacity to study during this time.

The Solution


One-to-one and small group tuition

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.

The government’s recent decision to enlist the intervention support of external agencies is a step in the right direction. The intervention offered will close the attainment gap which has been broadened by this year’s lockdown. Love Literacy is perfectly positioned to solve this need. Through intervention, our most vulnerable, disaffected, poverty-stricken young people will be supported through face-to-face and/or 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.

For the past 8 years Love Literacy has provided tuition, consultancy, training, mentorship and coaching to hundreds of students and educators. We pride ourselves on our small class sizes of up to 8 students per teacher and the effective utilisation of Assistants to expedite progress.

Online

Zooom
Following the announcement of school closures and National lockdown measures, Love Literacy launched its KS1-4 online provision, consisting of 6-week courses. Learners actively participate in live virtual English, Maths and Literature classes, with access to their own online learning platform for homework, teacher feedback and revision.
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..
~Mrs Egbom, parent
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.
~Zoya, student
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.
~Veronica, student

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.
