Primary English

Take off with English

Strong literacy skills are fundamental to educational success and yet so many children struggle in one or more aspect – often leaving primary school ‘below expectations’ in one or more areas.

Even for those who have not fallen behind, the demands of the current National Curriculum which (amongst other things) expects young children to master complex grammatical terms and advanced punctuation often crowds out the more creative, enjoyable aspects of English. 

At Flying Start, it is our goal to put the joy back into reading and writing. We believe in inspiring our pupils to read for enjoyment and to be imaginative, independent writers. We still teach the technical stuff but we do this through a series of fun, interactive small group lessons that build confidence, encourage creativity and celebrate individuality. 

Our lessons are tailored to the each student’s learning preferences and are designed to be interactive and fun. Our small group sizes mean your child will have all the support they need.

My daughter received her 11+ result today and we are thrilled that she managed to achieve above the required score. 
She was not tutored but we did use your ‘Mocks in a Box’ at home and she also attended one of your mock exam days.
The contents of the box were an enormous help, as was the mock exam day – she gained a lot of confidence knowing what might be expected of her.
