    Initiatives in place to ensure pupils make accelerated progress:

    Description of activities

    Year 7 Booster group

    This small group of pupils, selected as a result of their ability profile on entry, are provided with an alternative curriculum which focusses on supporting them in making rapid progress in their English and mathematics specifically. Some pupils who are strong in English but need extra support in mathematics will be supported with an additional hour of mathematics but will not be on the alternative curriculum pathway. The schools aim is to ensure rapid progress so that the pupils are able to reintegrate back into the main Year 7 curriculum swiftly. Some however will remain in the booster group for the whole of year 7 and will re-join the main school curriculum in Year 8.

    Read Write Inc. morning programme

    At the point of entry to West Hatch, all pupils undertake accelerated reader tests to ascertain their reading ages. Where pupils are significantly below the required reading age, they are expected to attend school at 08:20 each day to follow the RWI phonics programme. Pupils on the programme are regularly re-tested and will be removed from the provision once they have reached a reading age in line with their peers. Pupils who receive catchup 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 o 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 quizzing programme. Small groups of pupils will also be removed for form time twice weekly to support them with their reading.

    1:1 tuition

    Pupils who require additional support in English or mathematics to catch up are provided with 10 week blocks of 1:1 tuition with one of the schools full time tutors.

    Raising Achievement Programmes (RAP) meetings

    The KS3 AHT meets with the KS3 Coordinator for English Maths and Science on a three week rotation to discuss specific, measurable interventions for individual pupils within their subjects. Pupils who are the furthest behind and therefore require the most support to catch up are a priority for this group. 

     

    Impact of initiatives to date:

    Yr7 – 2015 (current year 8)

    18 pupils in total of which 14 were below level 4 in English on entry and 13 were below level 4 in mathematics. 8 of these pupils entered the school below level 4 in both English and mathematics.

    In English, 67% of pupils made at least 3 sublevels of progress over the course of the year with 77% (11/14) making at least expected progress (2 sub levels).

    In mathematics, 46% of pupils made at least 3 sublevels of progress over the course of the year with 85% (11/14) making at least expected progress (2 sub levels).

    The pupils failing to make at least expected progress in English and/or mathematics were different pupils in both subject areas.

    Read Write Inc. Programme – 67% of pupils made at least one year’s progress in the six week period of the trial for this programme in 2015/16.

    Yr 7 – 2014 (current year 9)

    19 pupils in total of which 8 were below level 4 in English on entry and 14 were below level 4 in mathematics. 3 of these pupils entered the school below level 4 in both English and mathematics.

    In English, 63% of pupils made at least 5 sublevels of progress over the course of the year with 86% (8/9) making at least expected progress (4 sub levels).

    In mathematics, 50% of pupils made at least 5 sublevels of progress over the course of the year with 79% (11/14) making at least expected progress (4 sub levels).

    The pupils failing to make at least expected progress in English and/or mathematics were different pupils in both subject areas.

    Any pupil who failed to make accelerated progress as a result of the intervention put in place will be placed on individual support plans this academic year to ensure they catch up with their peers.
