    Well matched provision for a wide range of pupils.

1 hour sessions (recommended twice weekly) based on pre-identified areas of the curriculum for pupil premium students who require individualised focused teaching to support and raise their achievement.

All outcomes are based on the aims of the National Curriculum and are tailored to enable pupils to close the attainment gap.

Interventions can be in groups or individually and coverage ranges from Years 1 – 6.

Each 6 week block is planned, evaluated and the impact documented.

Attainment gaps will be identified through entrance tests and existing school information where a focused personalised programme of support will then be planned to close the gaps, and the impact of this will be evaluated through the exit data, teacher assessment and pupil self assessment.

Detailed reports are provided to schools to quantify the impact of the interventions and academic progress achieved.

Sessions are led by qualified teachers with over 20 years experience of primary education, they have a vast knowledge of pupil premium, SEN, inclusion and behaviour.

Research from the Education Endowment Foundation evidences that small group and 1:1 tuition can impact a child’s learning by up to 5 months.

COST: £75 per hour or £200 per morning.
