DWHS catch up intervention groups in school
Intervention groups in year 7- 9 (English, Science, Languages, History, Geography, Year 8 pastoral group (literacy), Year 9 Pastoral(GCSE POD) for one hundred and fifty students.
All students on the catch-up classes have had parental contact and their attendance to sessions is monitored. Students have completed the literacy catch-up element of the year 8 programme and these students have now mostly been selected to participate in the geography, science and languages catch up sessions. Three students on the year 7 literacy programme have made sufficient progress to leave and make space for further students.
Curriculum areas are at various stages of embedding Pre-learning into their curriculums. Department areas are developing pre learning resources to help create more space and time in lessons to complete the content that may have been missed during ‘lock down’ one. Departments have created and tested a range of resources from knowledge organisers in science to ‘pre learning PPTs in history and geography. Departments have made use of the online ‘quizzing’ function in MS Office to provide students with a low threat but high challenge way of self-assessment and also to monitor how well he pre-learning sources are being used. Across four main departments over two thousand five hundred assessments have been completed and re-completed.
