Welcome to the Purley First Class Learning Centre. Sejal Littlebury has been running highly successful after-school maths and English classes for over 10 years.
COVID-19 News - In line with recent measures this centre is temporarily closed for face-to-face visits. However, our worksheets are delivered and we continue to support your child remotely, via zoom breakout rooms. All of our students can still make the same progress as if they were coming to class.
The First Class Learning materials are suitable for children studying Key Stage 1 (KS1) through to Key Stage 3 (KS3). Since the resources used follow the National Curriculum, they provide a solid foundation for the 11-plus, SATs tests or school work. The aim is to ensure all students build confidence and develop independent learning skills through regular practice along with guidance, support and encouragement from the centre manager and staff.
Through our structured programmes, Sejal individualises each child’s learning path, which is targeted to fill any existing gaps in their understanding. This therefore helps with school work, builds confidence and develops independent learning skills, something that is extremely important in today’s busy classrooms in school.
Our maths and English programmes are flexible and tailored to learners’ individual needs and abilities so students move on only when they are confident with a topic whilst not repeating subject matter they have already mastered at school.
The first step is to call the Centre Manager to discuss how we can help your child with maths or English and to arrange a convenient time for an assessment. Sejal will then assist your child to complete an assessment which will enable us to put together a bespoke course of action that will support and encourage your child's learning. It will fill in any gaps in their knowledge, enabling them to gain confidence and continue to build on their skills. In the classes they will complete a short piece of work which will be marked and returned. Support is provided to ensure that the work is understood and feedback is provided to help improve skills. A detailed programme of homework is provided, to be completed before the next class. Regular testing ensures that the work has been understood and your child is ready to move on, whilst also ensuring that unnecessary repetition of work that has already been mastered is avoided.
