Quest for Learning supports disadvantaged primary school children in Oxfordshire who have fallen behind their peers through high quality English and Maths interventions. Our programmes have been in demand from schools in our county for 24 years. And that’s because what we do works! In just 2 months children on our literacy programmes make 14 months’ progress in reading on average – some make as much as 40 months’ progress!
They have three key literacy and numeracy programmes:
ReadingQuest: designed to boost reading accuracy with highly personalised 1:1 sessions over six weeks, usually with children in Key Stage 1.
BookQuest: delivered to small groups of children, usually in Key Stage 2, who have significant issues with reading comprehension.
NumSkills: game-based activities used by our tutors with small groups of children to boost mental maths and overall confidence.
Lifelines are currently funding a Summer 2021 pilot with a view to supporting a longer term (1 year) programme in future:
Summer 2021 pilot: BookQuest programme delivered to 6 children over 9 weeks from April 2021 to July 2021. BookQuest is taught on a 1:2 basis for 30 minutes, twice a week plus home learning “Quests”.
