Supporting families through the coronavirus school closures: enjoy free access
Bedrock Vocabulary is a reading and vocabulary curriculum that has achieved great results in schools and we’re thrilled that it’s now available to use at home too.
Whether you’re a tutor, a home educator or simply a parent wanting to boost your child’s prospects, we can support you.
If you are the parent of a child who already uses Bedrock at school, find out how to create your free parent account to better support your child’s learning.
TutorsOur nine-block curriculum ensures each tutee is learning from material perfectly matched to their ability. You can set Bedrock as homework for your tutees to complete independently, check their progress remotely via your tutor dashboard and then discuss and embed their learning with them in your next session. Our dashboard provides detailed information on the usage and progress of each individual tutee.
Home educatorsWhether you’re home-schooling just one child or multiple children, our wide programme (which spans a period of nine years from start to finish) means you can ensure each child is learning at the level that’s right for them – not too easy, and not too hard. Our curriculum structure also includes regular assessment points which we know can be hard to work into home learning. Your child/children can study online independently of you, but you can review their learning and progress via your dashboard, ensuring you understand and can celebrate their progress, while offering extra support if it’s needed.
ParentsWhether you’re looking for a tool to stretch a really talented child or to support a child who’s struggling at school, our technology is ideal because your child studies separately from you, allowing you to do other tasks while encouraging their independence. Our parent dashboard enables you to understand their progress, making it easy for you as a family to support their learning. You can even see the words they are learning each week – why not weave them into family conversations to ensure even more language practise?
“Using Bedrock has made her written and spoken language much richer. I also notice that she is more confident tackling difficult texts and her comprehension has improved immensely.” – Bedrock tutor
What can you expect?
Whether you’re a tutor, home educator or parent, Bedrock will:

“Bedrock works because it gives an immediate sense of progress to students” – Suzie Johnson, Director of English, Diss High School
