In the year 2013-14 we had seventeen students who obtained a level 3 or below in their SATs. Three students reached level three just in English and three just in Maths. The rest had three in both English and Maths. The school received approximately £8,500 to help these students improve their levels in literacy and numeracy.
Ten of these students received extra support in literacy and numeracy in a group of four twice a week for an hour for the whole year. This was delivered by specialist tutors brought in from outside.
Three of the students received an hour a week one to one literacy tuition from a specialist tutors brought in from outside. This was for the whole year.
Four of the students received an hour a week one to one numeracy tuition from a specialist tutors brought in from outside. This was for the whole year.
In addition to this they all had shared TA support in all their lessons
In English all went up by at least one sub level and three by a whole level. In Maths all students went up at least on sub level bit ten of them went up by a whole level.
The expectation is that the same model of support will be followed during 2014-15. Of the year 7 cohort for academic year 2014-15, 12 students achieved level 3 or below in their SATS, so the school expects to receive £6,000.
