What Professionals Say

We have used The Number Box™  for a number of years; it is a great resource to support children with Maths and also supports teachers to recommend next steps with the areas where children are having difficulties.

Joanne Kennedy

Specialist Support Services Associate Teacher , Together for Children, Sunderland

All the children using the Five Minute Literacy Box™ have made significant progress. Prior to the intervention spelling and reading ability for these learners were concerning. 95% of learners have improved by a year or more.

Gerard Curley

Headteacher, Neilston Primary School, Renfrewshire

For pupils who need support in addition to high quality teaching in whole class and group contexts, the Ten Minute Box™ fills the gap for individualised support for those who need it most. The children have made notable improvements in their confidence with reading and willingness to ‘have a go’ in class. Having regular, targeted one-to-one support (for 3 months) with the Ten Minute Box™ has made a big difference to these children.

Assistant Head/ Inclusion Lead, Shelf Primary School
