Every Child Counts

We are an accredited  Every Child Counts School, and as such we are able to offer a range of highly effective interventions, designed to raise pupils confidence and attainment in mathematics. All lessons are taught in a dedicated Maths area in addition to pupils daily mathematics lessons. Our data shows all our pupils make accelerated progress increasing their number ages between 10 and 24 months on completion. Communication with class teachers is a key element to the interventions success.  Monitoring of progress continues after pupils have completed it. This is to ensure their progress is maintained. Further support, if required is given.
