Why SKIPS

Parent support is essential

There are always so many constraints on family’s time and resources but we all want the best for our children. Research shows that parental involvement in a child’s learning is a key indicator of educational success.


No educational books at home?

Research also shows that a third of children at primary school age in the UK have no books at home. In addition, according to established publishers’ findings, the number of families having no educational books to support school work at home is likely to be substantially higher and could be as much as 90%.

 

Making a real difference

SKIPS are working with our partners in education and industry to dramatically change the landscape of education in the UK. Empowering parents, teachers and children to embrace the wonder of English literacy and Mathematics numeracy inline with the National Curriculum and in support of classroom lessons.
