£25,200 (over one year) has been awarded to Springboard for Children. The project provides twice weekly school based one to one literacy tuition for children with a reading age approximately two years behind their chronological age. Springboard assesses children each term using tools which measure progress towards age related expectations. The charity also seeks to engage with parents providing advice on supporting literacy development at home. This will be run in three Lambeth Primary Schools (Lark Hall, St Stephens and Heathbrook).
