The Leave No Child Behind (LNCB) game-based mathematics learning pilot project is designed to support Year 6 students’ math’s academic achievement, and school engagement in a disadvantaged school contexts using a game-based teaching approach. The study include 21 students and parents. Mixed-methods research method was used to reveal the added value and impact of the game-based math learning project. Baseline data was collected using pre-test and post-test for the pupils, pupil focus groups supported by parent surveys. The pupil focus groups were examined their pre-and post-club views of primary math’s, and afterschool club participation, as well as views/experiences of student behavior, and family engagement. Pupil pre- and post-achievement data was used to examine how the project adds value to their participation, using tests to create norm-referenced estimations of whether pupils are working at expected levels, below expectation, or at greater depth compared to their peers in the country. The parent survey was explored parents’ perceptions of how the after-school program influenced their child’s academic achievement and behavior. Statistical analyses focused on the data set from the online questionnaire for parents, and experimental test. The LNCB project revealed that game-based math learning approach increased academic attainment, and students
