Local schools tech provider helps primary pupils with post-lockdown catch-up

23rd Sep

Good2Learn, a local provider of online maths and English resources to primary and secondary schools, has been working with Hedon Primary School to support targeted intervention and raise performance levels post-lockdown.

Following the return to school after Covid-19 closures, the school implemented support for the children as they re-established their routines and reclaimed their academic resilience.

Throughout teaching online during the lockdown, it was apparent that while many children could work independently and manage their learning, others could not and lacked independence and confidence. 

The school adopted the Good2Learn solution because it can be used seamlessly both in school and at home as well as providing several other benefits. All Good2Learn online lessons are written by qualified teachers and of the highest quality.

Angela Baker, deputy headteacher at Hedon Primary School, said: “Teachers and teaching assistants are able to access the platform and direct the children to specific work units where support is needed.

“Good2Learn has saved us so much time in being able to monitor the children’s usage and progress and access detailed real-time reports and data which is essential in the current difficult climate.”

As well as being a great support to the teachers in school, the children have loved using Good2Learn. They receive immediate feedback on their answers and can jump in and out of the relevant lessons to support the learning and achieve the best results.

Paul Mandalia, CEO of Good2Learn, said: “It’s a real pleasure to see our product having a positive impact on the children at Hedon Primary School. We are now supporting an increasing number of schools both primary and secondary with targeting support to children who have been affected by the lockdowns.”

In addition to an impressive level of pupil engagement and enthusiasm, in just 30 days, the school saw a 10.8% overall improvement in performance with an average overall and steadily increasing score of 65.1% for the school.

Good2Learn has also supported other local schools including South Hunsley School, Malet Lambert School, The Aspire Academy, Compass Academy and Hull City Council’s Virtual School. All schools in the region are eligible for a free trial of Good2Learn’s award-winning solution.
