It is an excellent programme, but one small thing to improve would be the available vocabulary for tailor made lessons. Teachers have shared that when making custom lessons, the vocabulary they would like to use is often unavailable. Also, it takes a little while to load results.

Reply from FlashAcademy®:Thanks so much for your review Fiona. Great to hear of the impact FlashAcademy® is having! We're always striving to improve to so we really value your feedback. We're constantly looking to expand our vocabulary, so if there are any specific words you need do reach out to support@flashacademy.com and they can work on adding them for you!

Since signing up to Flashacademy in 2018 and being part of a case study, I think this is a fantastic platform for teaching EAL. The children find it fun therefore, it doesn't feel like they are working. Learning while having fun.

I believe it is a very useful software not just for EAL pupils but for all pupils, including underachievers, It can also be used by all pupils to consolidate different aspects of learning of for whole class handwriting/ letter formation, phonics or french lessons

It's fun, children love it and learn at the same time. Parents can get involved too. Children arriving who speak little English can often feel isolated and anxious, I feel this enables children to feel valued and welcome.

Claire Evans found flashacademy:
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    Children who have used the app have made better than expected progress in attainment
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    When children arrive who do not speak a good level of English they can be significantly behind other's in their class. To differentiate this much can pressurise teachers and place them under undue stress.

    It hasn't been long enough for us to measure the gap. However it has impacted on the children generally and they are becoming more confident in speaking English
