What we do

Springboard for Children are the experts in providing one-to-one literacy teaching for children and young people who struggle with learning to read, write, speak and listen. 

We are unique because 

  • Springboard is the only charity who provides specialised one-to-one tuition that improve all aspects of a child's literacy learning, i.e. reading, writing, speaking and listening. 
  • Springboard works in schools and communities experiencing the greatest challenges.
  • Springboard staff are flexible to children's needs.
  • Springboard works in partnership with schools and parents and makes sure our work reinforces classroom learning.

In the 2015/16 academic year Springboard's Expert tuition programme closed the reading age gap for 91% of graduates.

I like having fun in Springboard. I enjoy playing spelling games and learning stuff. I love reading books. I think Springboard is great!
