    Initiatives in place to ensure pupils make accelerated progress:


    Description of activities

    Read Write Inc. morning programme

    At the point of entry to West Hatch, all pupils undertake reading tests to ascertain their reading ages. Where pupils are significantly below the required reading age, they are expected to attend school at 08:15 each day to follow the RWI phonics programme. Pupils on the programme are regularly re-tested and are removed from the provision once they reach a reading age in line with their peers. Pupils who are identified for catch-up funding and need specific support in their English are targeted first within this programme.

    Reading intervention

    For pupils who are identified as requiring additional support, but do not have a reading age low enough to trigger RWI support, receive additional intervention through the schools LSA reading intervention programme where targeted pupils are provided with a lead LSA who reads with them twice weekly and utilises the accelerated reading test programme. Small groups of pupils are removed during form time twice weekly to support them with their reading.

    Reading Buddies

    This is for students of a slightly higher reading age but still below 11 years old.  Students are paired with KS4 students (Avg. reading age 16) students to read during form time for 20 minutes.  This is supported by KS5 mentors.

    Raising Achievement Programmes (RAP) meetings

    The KS3 AHT meets with the KS3 Coordinator for English Maths and Science on a three weekly cycle to discuss specific interventions for individual pupils within their subjects. Pupils who need support in Year 7 are identified during these meetings and appropriate interventions take place. 


    Impact of initiatives in 2016/17:
