We have just started using Lexia PowerUp and have been very impressed with the efficient service provided by Laura. The training is well-structured and clear, and any queries are dealt with quickly. The support has been great.
To say that the children are engaged is an understatement; I have never witnessed a class of children of all abilities become so immersed in a reading program. The children love to be rewarded for their efforts and cannot wait to receive their next certificate, this also spurs on their peers too! We would not be without Lexia now.
We've noticed changes to our students' motivation to succeed in literacy and how are they responding to their own progression through the Lexia levels. Our students love it, there has been a truly positive response to it, so overwhelming in fact we have had to encourage some children to slow down - that is unheard of!!!!
I have found Lexia has really benefitted my students. I have been using it both with students who are in school and those who are remote learning. The students have found it easy to access both in school and at home and this has helped us to deliver and develop the key literacy skills that the students need.
I am so passionate about Lexia, PowerUp is really user friendly, it doesn’t patronise the children at all. The students respond with great enthusiasm and are motivated to complete units and levels, as they want to achieve. I am extremely proud of my students and their successes!
It’s easy to see why our pupils have made so much progress: students love the program. It has been incredible to see students who have sometimes found it difficult to engage in literacy activities grow in confidence and thrive in and out of the classroom. Students are keen to work independently through the tasks for homework and it’s been invaluable during lockdown.
Lexia has given us a whole school platform which ensures consistency in approach, whilst giving learning matched to each individual pupil, allowing progress from their starting points. Whether in school or via remote learning, Lexia provides us with the mechanism for monitoring and increasing progress and improving outcomes
We are delighted to have Lexia as part of our support strategy in our school. Although it is early days, we are confident that the system will provide us with exactly the targeted research-based intervention that we need. The capability to be undertaken at home is of course invaluable at this time. The support from John has been second to none and we feel we are getting the help we need to implement the program with precision and fidelity.
Within ten minutes of the demonstration starting, I was hooked. Amongst other positives, I knew Lexia would be great for engaging our reluctant readers. Plus, the program can be easily installed and used at home, which was of huge benefit during the spring/summer lockdown, and potentially for another lockdown.
With blended learning currently in place at the moment, we have to monitor pupil engagement on a daily basis, the one area that is thriving is Lexia, parents are reporting that the children can't wait to complete their Lexia work, parents are finding it very supportive as their children are completely independent whilst using the program, freeing up some valuable time for our busy parents having to add homeschooling to their daily routine.
Lexia could not have come at a more poignant time for us as a school. Back in 2020, just as the prospect of home-learning seemed increasingly likely, we recognised that Lexia had the potential to not only support our pupils reading progress in school but also form a core part of our 'remote learning' provision. With Lexia, we are able to have an overview of not only every child's engagement in the program but also their progress; identifying key gaps in knowledge and using the resources provided by Lexia to scaffold interventions.
I like Lexia because it sharpens your mind. The comprehension units have really helped me improve on my comprehension tests. Overall, it is very helpful and fun. I really love the animations at the end. I would definitely recommend this to someone else!
Lexia has been a fantastic resource which has supported our children when returning to the classrooms this academic year. We have used this as part of our ‘recovery curriculum’ and having implemented it for a term, the reports produced to demonstrate the excellent academic progress the children have made in a very short space of time.
Lexia is a game changer! Now we are back in lockdown and most children are learning at home, it's reassuring to know that the children are accessing bespoke learning.
Lexia is fabulous! We have been using it for such a short time - in the most difficult of circumstances - and it has already been of benefit to us.
We love it and we're now preparing to see how we can use it to good effect in lockdown.
I have been teaching for 15 years and I have never been so engaged with a program before because you can really see the impact it is having on our children. Lexia is just the gift that keeps on giving. You do need the time to get your head around the program as there is so much on there but it is all brilliant.
Pupils at our school have greatly benefitted from the Lexia reading program. Lexia provides support and challenge which is personalised for each child. Children are able to apply their learning from Lexia in class and enjoy the warm-up games. It has been wonderful to see that the children are so enthusiastic about reading and are making progress whilst enjoying a wide variety of texts. Barcroft Primary School
We have been very impressed with the customer service from Lexia. We have always been able to speak to the same representative by telephone or email whenever we have needed support. The two training sessions (by telephone) were extremely helpful and we were advised of exactly how the program worked in a way that was very easy to follow. All queries were welcomed and answered instantly. We would not hesitate to recommend Lexia.
The Kyra Research School Pilot, involved 8 schools trialling our primary program, Core5, with one also using PowerUp to target secondary age pupils. The data included in the following report has been anonymised and breaks down the measured progress and usage for a varying number of students across participating schools over a six month period.

Lexia is an extremely thorough and in-depth program using all the learning tools that are needed to ensure the children have covered online learning and applying the skills to classroom-based activities and in a class of 32 children, it's like having 32 teachers who are fully engaged and personalising the learning for all the children.
Our pupils have enthusiastically participated in Lexia's engaging personalised reading scheme, both at school and at home and have made good progress. They have been motivated to learn each of the various skills needed to become fluent readers.
Lexia is what we have been waiting for and now we are “living the reading dream,” as one of my Year 6 students said about the program!
We have been delighted with the progress made by our pupils and can see the benefit in continuing with whole year groups as well as using it for targeted interventions.
"My Year 1 children have really enjoyed accessing Lexia. They look forward to going on this program and have even used it at home in their own time. It differentiates all my children and provides detailed lesson plans for children who are struggling. I would thoroughly recommend this to schools."
"We undertook a trial period of the program and engaged students with below age-related English skills. During the trial, we found that the students engaged well with the program, particularly students who can find learning in the classroom a challenge. Disaffected students engaged well with the program and their progress is evident."
"If you can imagine all the initiatives, resources and programs that are out there where companies try to put a hard sell on us and then have very little after sale support, you [Lexia] blow them out of the water. Your manner and genuine support mean a lot to us."
"The majority of pupils using PowerUp are making more than expected progress in their reading ages and are becoming more confident readers."
“The reports are an instant visual for progress from where the children started to where they are now and seeing the visual graphs to show how the children have progressed is really useful."
"I firmly believe that the program helped and supported Year 6 to get the great results which they achieved in all areas of the English related SATs."
“Lexia is really good as it focuses children on the aspects of reading that they struggle with and breaks that element of reading down in simpler chunks".
