Launchpad for Learning are weekly 1 or 2 day specialist literacy and numeracy support days.

During the school day, from 9am-3pm, during term time (authorisation from the head teacher of your child’s school will be necessary in order to attend).

Children aged 7-11 who have been identified as having specific difficulties with literacy and/or numeracy. They do not necessarily have to have a definitive ‘diagnosis’ of dyslexia although this is helpful.

The aim is to support dyslexic pupils in developing their confidence as learners, providing them with a range of skills they can put to good use in their mainstream schools. We provide targeted literacy and numeracy support alongside a range of literacy and language enrichment experiences.

Each half term we will introduce a new engaging and exciting theme, for example ‘Explorers’, ‘Space’ or ‘Under the Sea’. Over this time pupils will develop their own project based on the theme. As well as intensive literacy and numeracy support they will develop a range of key skills through art, music, drama and ICT.

The sessions are lead by our Lead Dyslexia Specialist Teacher alongside a highly qualified and experienced Higher Level Teaching Assistant. We guarantee a very high staff to pupil ratio. This means that children are able to access specifically targeted literacy and numeracy support and are also well supported during group tasks.

We aim to work closely with schools and help children to work on IEP targets. We also help to develop children’s key skills as outlined in the National Curriculum alongside a range of transferable skills to improve their confidence as a learner once back in school. These might include organisation skills, mind mapping, note taking and ACE dictionary skills.

The price is currently £60.00 per day. Tomorrow’s Generation is a registered charity and therefore a non-profit organisation. All fees go towards our running costs.

Since 2014, Launchpad for Learning has been held in the Tomorrow’s Generation Learning Centre in Lisvane, on the Old School Community Centre site on Llwyn-y-Pia Road, Lisvane, Cardiff CF14 0SX. In September 2020, whilst extensive refurbishment work is carried out at the Old School site, we are moving temporarily to Lisvane Tennis Club off Cherry Orchard Road, Lisvane, Cardiff CF14 0UD.

We have an outdoor play area and a woodland learning area. There may be occasional opportunities for pupils to experience a tennis taster session.

At the end of each half term we provide a short report detailing targets identified and progress made. These might include literacy, numeracy or personal targets.

  • A packed lunch, drinks and healthy snacks.
  • A warm or waterproof coat or jacket.
  • Trainers or suitable outdoor shoes.
