Our Work – Primary School
With a focus on supporting the parents and home tutors working with the children, we provide individualised learning plans to enhance essential Literacy and Numeracy skills and build a solid foundation in the first three years of schooling. We also work with children from Year 3 to 6 to address gaps in their Literacy and Numeracy skills to ensure they can access the curriculum at their year level.
Developing a Love of Literacy
Literacy is the ability to identify, understand, interpret, create and communicate. In simple terms, it is our ability to read, write, listen and speak. Without these skills, everyday tasks become exceptionally difficult. Imagine trying to go about your daily life if you couldn’t read, write or clearly express your thoughts, ideas and opinions. RAISEducation recognises the importance of Literacy and strives to support students to build a strong foundation.
Our Literacy programs are evidence-based and incorporate over 40 years of scientific evidence on best practice in teaching Literacy. They are tailored to the individual needs of every student, with no two programs being the same just as no two students are the same. We listen carefully to the parent and/or home tutor to identify the strengths and areas for development for each child. We also conduct simple assessment tasks to identify a child’s individual needs.
Making Numeracy Fun and Applicable
At RAISEducation, we believe it is essential to go back to basics and build a solid foundation. Our Numeracy lessons develop a students’ understanding of number and operations along with the ability to use this knowledge in flexible ways to make mathematical judgements and develop efficient strategies. Our lessons are built around simple game-based activities to increase a child’s engagement.
Our program is based on three essential underpinnings:
Numeration: An understanding of numbers and place value and the ability to identify patterns and think about mathematical problems in more than one way.
Meaning for the operations: An understanding of what the operations do, an ability to recognise the operation symbols and an ability to write and interpret symbolic statements.
Mental Strategies (number facts): A working knowledge of number facts including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, developed through efficient mental strategies.
We develop students’ automaticity with numbers and their ability to explain and justify their strategies and working. It is essential that students know the concepts and reasoning behind mathematical ideas, not just the procedure to get an answer.

Money can’t buy happiness, but it can help to buy a day of face-to-face support for a Grade 2 student learning to read, which we think is even better.
