Key Objective:

To support the priorities of the SDP in relation to narrowing the attainment gap and focussing on accelerated progress

Action: 1:1 and small group tuition for identified pupils (NTE programme – Racing to English, Maths focus and English focus work)

Success Criteria: A reduction in the attainment gap and accelerated progress of FSM/LAC and non FSM students (including NTE) in all year groups in mathematics and English levels

Impact:

NTE children are receiving 1:1/ small group interventions to accelerate their knowledge of the English language, hence are able to integrate better into classroom learning across the curriculum. Through training and coaching, class teachers have developed skills to include NTE children into the curriculum.

Targeted year 6 children have made accelerated progress. The 1:1/ small group tuition has contributed to this. Gaps in children’s learning have been identified and targeted.

Cost

£50,000.00

 

Action: Homework clubs for KS1 and KS2 pupils (resources and staffing)

Success Criteria: Pupils engage in the project. A reduction in the attainment gap and accelerated progress of FSM/ LAC and non FSM students (including NTE) in all year groups in mathematics and English levels

Impact:

Children who have struggled to complete their homework at home, for whatever reason, have been able to complete their work with support from a L2/ L3 TA. These children have been able to consolidate their learning through this homework. Teacher feedback suggests that the children have been able to move their learning forward at the same pace as the children who do their homework at home without prompt. Children feel happier that they have done their homework and can receive a reward (merit/ tick) for doing so.

Success Criteria: Pupils and parents are able to consolidate and extend learning outside the classroom. A reduction in the attainment gap and accelerated progress of FSM/ LAC and non FSM students in all year groups in mathematics and English levels

Impact:

Study support packs have allowed children (particularly yr6) to take more responsibility for their own learning/ revision to practise and consolidate classwork. The study support packs have contributed to raising attainment/ closing gaps in year 6 data.
