virtual tutor Maths-Whizz plus supporting teacher training and resources for eight weeks, to help schools identify knowledge gaps and support children to catch up on lost learning. Emma Ringe, schools director, Whizz Education, confirms: “We know

that in a typical year when students switch off over the summer, they tend to lose around two-three months’ worth of maths knowledge, known as summer learning loss. Despite the heroic efforts of teachers, continued interruption to education due to the pandemic, plus the summer break, means many children are struggling with maths. “The first step to address this challenge is to identify knowledge gaps.

The offer includes an initial assessment so both teachers and parents can easily evaluate where individual children are concerning their maths

Ringe continues: “As a company, Whizz Education is committed to

improving learning outcomes. We believe that every child deserves a learning experience that caters to their individual needs and pace of learning and so we are now offering the chance for a limited number of schools to access our full range of services and our Maths-Whizz virtual tutor for a trial period. This will help teachers identify which skills need to be supported and to demonstrate how the solution can assist children in mixed ability settings to address lost knowledge and make accelerated learning gains.”
