We have 21 students in Year 7 who are eligible for the premium in numeracy due to having a raw score of 95 and below in their KS2 SAT
In numeracy we deliver small group, paired and 1:1 intervention depending on the level of need of the student. This proves to be the most effective method of support for the students, they retain more of what they learn and explore due to the method of repetition. Intervention is timetabled and delivered by a Maths teacher who has expertise in closing the gap by ensuring students become more skilled and able to use these skills to problem solve.
We use a combination of Hegarty maths and practical numeracy resources to support student’s learning. In addition to direct teaching, students are shown the questions where they have performed the weakest in and this links to the specific Hegarty Maths lessons where they can watch video examples and then complete a mini quiz which tests that skill. This can be monitored by the class teacher and the intervention leader.
Regular assessments take place at the end of each topic in addition to whole school assessments, this ensure that the students are monitored and tracked, with timely intervention as needed.
