The Year 7 Accelerated Learning Programme
My name is Mrs Vicky Plested and I am the lead for the accelerated learning programme. I have recently moved to the island with my family from Swindon, Wiltshire where I had been an advanced skills teacher and a Deputy Head of a primary school. Setting up the accelerated learning programme has been really exciting and a great way to build links through our school.
We are excited to be introducing the Year 7 accelerate learning programme this year. This programme lasts for 10 weeks and is focused on the gaps Year 7 have in English or maths and activities are planned to fill these gaps so that children can make good progress in their lessons. The sessions are taught by experienced primary trained teachers. They take place twice a week for one hour and are either during period 5 or after school. The feedback we have received from parents and students has been great. They are keen to learn and produce work of a good quality. After the 10 weeks, there will be a celebration event to acknowledge the success the children who have attended regularly have made.
Please see below a selection of resources that we use in the sessions that your children might find helpful when completing homework.
