Students in Year 6-Year 13 have had the most difficult two years in the history of modern education. All students will have been affected by the pandemic, creating significant gaps in their learning. In total, it is estimated that the most disadvantaged will have moved back 14 months from where they would be expected to be in terms of academic and emotional development, reading age, literacy and numeracy.
Our whole school ‘Closing the Gaps’ Intervention programme aims to:
REFLECTION WEEKS TO CLOSE GAPS IN CURRENT LEARNING
Assessment Reflection/Intervention Weeks happen at the end of every Learning Cycle (Scheme of Learning) to ensure all students work to improve in identified areas for Development
