For the academic year 2015-2016 we received £500

NUMERACY

Funding has been used to launch a ‘Challenge Maths’ programme across all secondary classes.  Pupils have had targeted teaching that helps them to focus on ‘using and applying’ the maths skills they have been learning in broader contexts. The grant has gone towards resourcing this new agenda, in particular by providing ‘Numicon’ as a visual and practical resource, plus additional sensory resources for our pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties.

The impact of the ‘challenge maths’ programme at year 7 has been to support 100% cohort progressing through sub levels to reach upper quartile target in maths.  Wider, across secondary, progress in maths is good at KS3 and KS4.

KS3

Maths LQ % MQ % UQ % MQ+ %  (UQ+MQ)
2013-14 (5) 0 60 40  100
2014-15 (3) 25 75 0  75
2015-16 (6) 16 67 17  84
Total                 (14) 14 67 19 86

KS3 Progress in Maths is good.

KS4

Maths LQ % MQ % UQ % MQ+ %  (UQ+MQ)
2013-14 (2) 0 50 50  100
2014-15 (2) 0 100 0  100
2015-16 (7) 0 0 100  100
Total  (11) 0 50 50 100

KS4 Progress in Maths is outstanding.

No pupils in KS4 have a lower quartile rate of progress due in part to a differing profile of need.

LITERACY

Year 7 English

New Speaking and Listening resources have been purchased with the focus of extending learning for higher achieving pupils.  At New Siblands, this is the cohort  working at National Curriculum Levels.

‘Talkabout’ is a comprehensive programme that has been developed by a speech and language therapist.

The impact this year has been: enhancing the delivery of a curriculum specific to the needs of our pupils that allows them to develop social speaking and listening skills.

The programme enables our pupils to make progress across a range of social speaking and listening skills including: self-awareness, self-esteem, body language, personal space, conversation skills and assertiveness.
