Southey Green Primary School is situated in north Sheffield within easy access of the M1 and the city centre.
They trialled Spelling with Emile in June 2019 and then purchased a subscription. We tracked a classes’ results over a 30 day period from mid-September to mid-October and saw a 23% increase in the number of correct answers given.
Southey Green was first built in 1930 as a grammar school and when the separate junior and infant schools amalgamated in 2006, it became one of the largest primary schools in South Yorkshire. The school became an academy from January 2013, within the Tapton School Academy Trust and as of September 2016, the school has 777 children on roll aged 2 to 11 years.
Ms Bethany Lemm a Year 5 teacher contacted Emile and arranged for a trial of Spelling with Emile for her class. Following a no-obligation trial, Southey Green purchased Spelling with Emile for £45+VAT for the entire school.
Throughout mid-September to mid-October, we anonymously tracked the percentage of correct answers entered by students.
Over this month, correct answers increased from 49% to 72% correct. While the difficulty of questions asked also increased automatically in line with students’ achievements in the game.
We run online demo’s daily for teachers throughout the year. They are a great way to see Emile in action and see if it’s right for your tutor group, school or MAT.
