Summary of the Intervention

Of the 28 students, 17 started the programme in November. They are being withdrawn from some Humanities lessons, for high quality focussed support in reading and mathematics. This consists of 27 different groups with 1:1 and small group support, working with our primary teacher. They are are assessed every six weeks and as soon as they reach a secure Level 4 they no longer receive the intervention and are being reintegrated into mainstream lessons. Some students who received Y7 catch-up intervention in 2015-2016 are continuing to receive intervention in 2017-2018. As soon as they reach levels which indicate that they are secondary ready they are returned to mainstream.

2016 – 2017 Impact statement (on-going)

From November to December, 17 Y7 students attended withdrawal over six weeks.

They worked on identified areas of need. Their start points were assessed by our resident primary specialist, using primary school reading, writing and Maths assessments. At the end of the six weeks, their progress was measured by a further assessment, using similar tests at a more challenging level.

In Maths, the average progress from KS2 scaled scores (local conversion) was +3.8 sub-levels. This represents rapid progress.

12/15 (80%) have now achieved ≥ L4b e.g. secondary ready in the areas which were addressed.

In Reading, the average progress from KS2 scaled scores (local conversion) was +5.8 sub-levels. This represents rapid progress.

7/14 (50%) have now achieved  ≥ L4b e.g. secondary ready, in reading comprehension.

8/15 (53%)  10/15 (67%) who took a star reading test in September and in December, made average progress of six months.
