70% of the target cohort of students showed improvement that should lead to them being at the expected standard by the end of the year. This leaves 8 students who required extra intervention through MathsWatch. Mr Nugent (lead practitioner) to monitor, set work and liaise with parents.
Next review: Y7AP2 April 2020
To ensure that the teaching group sizes are reduced for those students who are in the ‘catch up’ groups in Phase 1. ‘Catch up’ students are set in three sets with support in place. Of the three sets, two are significantly smaller in size than the rest of the year group. The third group is slightly smaller than the remainder of the year group but is being taught by a departmental leader.
To ensure that there is an appropriate SOW in place which focuses on the appropriate skills required for this group in Phase 1. SOW adapted in appropriate sets to ensure that the students are covering the skill areas that they are weakest in based on previous years’ experience, QLA information, Student Voice and primary liaison.
To provide appropriate resources for this cohort for use in Phase 2. Additional resources, in place ready for use in individual/small group intervention for Phase 2.

Individual targets to be set for all catch up students to ensure that the target areas are covered via MathsWatch. January testing to be the next indicator.
