To answer that question one needs to find a programme that not only makes a major difference to pupils in a fundamental area of education, but which also generates improvements that can be easily measured and readily verified.
Just about the most obvious area of work that meets these twin criteria is literacy.
Clearly it is not difficult to identify children who are slipping behind in terms of literacy. But if one can then, in a short period of time, ensure they have caught up, then the progress cannot be questioned.
What’s more, with this approach in place and the results proven, it is possible to move on from there and use the same method with other children who likewise have slipped behind.
The approach that can achieve this dramatic turnaround, and which is a perfect use of Pupil Premium funding, uses one-to-one tuition for selected pupils but without the costs generally expected with these sorts of initiatives.
To demonstrate that this initiative works, we offer a free trial of our approach within which every literacy misunderstanding and every concept not fully grasped is instantly spotted and leads to the child going back a step for remedial work.
Each individual’s literacy needs are analysed and each pupil is directed to an engaging set of activities which remedy any deficits before advancing through to the next set of skills.
This level of instruction is thus accurately reflective of the child’s current abilities, and each pupil gets a feeling of success and progress which of itself is highly motivational.
To enable you to see this process in action before making any firm decisions, there is more information about Core 5, the program which achieves these extraordinary results here.
