What teachers are saying…
“In my role as assistant headteacher I am responsible for arranging and monitoring the impact of interventions in my school; we are forever seeking new and innovative ways of supporting target pupils to make additional progress.
We have been working with Yipiyap for almost a year now and the experience has been extremely rewarding for our school; Joe has engaged very well with our young people and we have employed him in a range of roles including individual support, small group work, mentoring and in-lesson support. His professionalism is well beyond his years and he sets an excellent standard to our pupils. Because of his relative closeness in age to our pupils his impact as a role model is heightened and he certainly personifies the attributes of inspirational and aspirational.
Yipiyap have offered the school a great service which represents value for money and high standards, we highly recommended them to others.”
“I cannot praise Jamie highly enough. We have really benefitted from his commitment and his work ethic. What a tremendous young man he is and a great role model to our students. We shall really miss him.”

“Kelvin has been a massive hit with our students. As the day has progressed I have caught up with each group and all were very positive. They have commented how they really enjoyed the opportunity and how much they like Kelvin. Some of the students have been a little disaffected due to recent set changes and to see them with a smile on their faces after Maths was fantastic.
I think the starting arrangements were excellent. To have that first week to organise ourselves and identify students while you meet and train the tutors was ideal. I wouldn’t change that next September at all.”

“The girls have continued to be awesome. They have worked so hard in all the year groups but of course, it is with my YR 11 hat on that I can comment. They are enormously supportive and the students really value their help.”

“I can’t speak highly enough of Dan and Raihan. They have shown a great deal of initiative and get on with the task in hand.
Although I initially thought I would use them as a boost to C/D borderline students, this has not always been possible due to the year 11 being in high demand from their other subjects. However, they are working in class supporting PP students and students who joined us sub level 4 on entry.
The next question is do you offer anything similar for English support? Also, would it be possible to increase capacity across Maths and English focusing on supporting PP students in the classroom with some extraction for intervention in groups when needed.
I met with the head this afternoon and fed back to her regarding the support from the two young men. She is keen to roll things out on a larger scale.”

“The sessions with Altaf have been beneficial to our Year 11 students. Altaf has built excellent relationships with all of the students he works with, some of whom struggle with new faces. The students have commented to me and their peers about the work completed with Altaf and all have been very positive.”
