Mentoring Programme for KS3 Students

Mrs Slater, KS3 Achievement Co-ordinator, has set up a Mentoring Programme for KS3 students to help them achieve and/or exceed their target levels by the end of the year.  The students met with Mrs Slater on a regular basis and focused on how they could improve and make more progress.  Students were given a mentoring card to record comments from subject teachers about their progress.

Over 70% of the students, across all three-year groups, have increased the number of subjects they are on track or above in and, in particular, 90% of Year 7 and Year 8 students on the programme achieved the same.
