"A brilliant day providing just the right inspiration for our next steps."
Steve Bailey, Headteacher at Chew Stoke C of E Primary School, Bristol
"Last year only 35% of our children passed the Year 1 phonics screening test. This year 73% passed and all of the children who re-took it in Year 2 passed. This is a direct result of having teachers and Teaching Assistants trained in phonics by Dandelion Learning. Their training has had such a positive impact on our children’s learning."
Susan Costello Headteacher at Connor Downs Primary School
"All of Tre and Pet's training sessions have been relevant, engaging, informative and full of quick, useful easy-to-resource fun activities to use in the classroom. The children have LOVED the grammar games. These along with the knowledge and confidence Tre and Pet's training has given me (and consequently the children) has resulted in significant progress in grammar knowledge and application for my year sixes and across the key stage. It meant the children tackled this year's SATs test with confidence and ability. I look forward to all training sessions and am never disappointed." Rhonda Nile, Biscovey Academy
