  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Maths Lessons pitched at the top end of the child's cognitive capacity reducing the effective class size by 6 children each day

I think the biggest impact it has on our students is the ability to continue to practise their key maths skills in a fun and engaging way.

Jane Gardiner found Whizz Education:
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    Maths Whizz compliments the maths teaching rather than reducing work load.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    Maths Whizz is useful for allowing students to keep on practising their key maths building blocks, so that fewer interventions are needed and students progress at a faster rate.
  • Moderately provides school data
    For our school, Maths Whizz reports is another tool to help us to check the consistency in our own assessments and allows us to see areas that students may be finding more tricky.
  • Slightly improves teaching efficiency
    Students can continue to practise the skills they have learned in the lessons so that they stay fresh in their mind, which means the next time the topic is taught, there is less recap work that needs to be done.
  • Moderately improves parent engagement
    Some parents are very engaged in the process and some students continue to carry out tasks on Maths Whizz at home regularly. We are going to have a push on students using Maths Whizz for homework.

Whizz is an inclusive, fun, actively based program which gives nothing but help to the children, school and teacher.

Mrs Birks found Whizz Education:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    We use it for homework and to consolidate learning
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    Through using fun activities with tech is an incentive for the children to learn without knowing they are learning.
  • Significantly provides school data
    I personally create Excel sheets so the teachers can see at a glance who has been using whizz and we give certificates to celebrate their achievements every week in assembly.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Because it can be linked to class work it is very efficient and can be used to aid children in the lesson.
  • Significantly improves parent engagement
    Through class dojo we keep our parents informed on the certificates and this in turn pushes them on to making time for their children to go on whizz. We also have parent information and they can see at a glance where their child is.
