On the Road to Recovery

Christ the Redeemer Primary School, Belfast, Northern Ireland

Christ the Redeemer School have been using Renaissance solutions for over a decade. In the midst of a global pandemic with schools across Northern Ireland being forced to partially close their doors to pupils, the school continue to maintain high levels of reading engagement and staff have managed to avoid seeing too big of a drop in learning based on recent assessment data. The school even faced an inspection at the halfway point of the pandemic and were still able to produce an accurate and detailed analysis of their pupils' progress and subsequent teaching strategies to support those who had dropped off in both reading and mathematics.

After our school closed, the learning didn’t have to stop, thanks to myON by Renaissance

I found myON from Renaissance when I was looking for a digital book to improve students reading and listening as EFL learners. The sales representative was very helpful, and we were offered a trial period free of charge during remote learning due to pandemic.
