The Upgrade Programme:
To improve the progress of students identified as having low reading ages at the end of KS2, we deliver this intensive small group tuition to identified students using a combination of CATs, SATS and reading age data. The Upgrade Programme is delivered to Year 7 students to help them improve reading skills, comprehension and metacognition.
The LIFT Programme:
The LIFT Programme aims to provide individual, personalised tuition to improve the reading ages and phonic awareness of Year 7 students identified as having reading ages below the National Average at the end of KS2. Using a combination of CATs, SATS and Year 7 reading age data to identify these students, we aim to ensure that all LIFT students make at least 12 months progress with their reading ages.
A guided reading scheme, available to a targeted group of year 7 students, which enables them to progress and achieve success and encourages a positive attitude to reading.
