We have 22 students in Year 7 who are eligible for the premium in literacy due to having a raw score of 95 and below in their KS2 Reading and or SPAG SAT.
In literacy we deliver a mixture of 1:1, paired and small group sessions. A child is allocated based on level of need. Sessions take place during lessons and tutor time or lessons, avoiding where possible core subject withdrawal. Catch up intervention is delivered by two highly skilled English teachers during formal timetabled slots.
We use a variety of programmes with students including Ruth Miskin Fresh Start reading intervention, IDL, Alpha and Omega. In addition to this the literacy team also research and create new resources specific to individuals. This ensures focus is not only on reading but also on comprehension and SPAG. During the sessions, students will focus on building their skill level and how to transfer their skills across all subjects.
