Ealing Maths Project
In 2019, Znaniye Foundation was awarded the Young Ealing Foundations Supplementary School Grants Programme. The grants programme is designed to raise the attainment levels of children and young people in Ealing by providing learning opportunities in core curriculum subjects such as Maths, English,
Science and IT.
Through this, Znaniye Foundation launched accessible, low cost drop in Maths Tuition Sessions in the Ealing Borough for students aged 3 - 15.
Our aim was to provide Maths drop-in sessions that are affordable and give children access to opportunities and support in a safe environment so they can truly fulfil their potential. Research proves that especially students from low-income backgrounds who do not receive access to additional learning support later struggle more with GCSE/ A-Levels and admissions to Universities.
We want to equip students with the knowledge their schools require so that they can later in life have the choice of various opportunities.
In March 2020, when Covid-19 Pandemic hit the UK, and in turn the lockdown began meaning all schools and sessions had to be shut, we knew we had two options; 1 - to stop running our sessions and restart once we were able to, or 2 - move the entire operation online and continue. We chose to continue, and expand.
We were incredibly pleased to have local teachers come on board, including SEND Practitioners, Preschool Specialists, and Secondary School Maths teachers to help us to continue to bring Maths to Students, in a time when it was needed more than ever - with schools closed and students having no access to help and tuition for a undefined amount of time.
