Weekend maths support for year 11 foundation students

Our mathematics department has started a Saturday morning maths programme to further support our year 11 foundation students in the run up to the GCSE exams. These classes take place at the academy and will run term-time on a Saturday, starting at 10am and finishing at 12noon.

Students have been selected on their work ethic and attitude to learning. All students complete a baseline test, which is returned fully marked with comments about the topics they need to improve (QLA). Online homework is set following this, which is completed in their own time at home over the course of the programme.

Week on week, students will be re-taught the topics in which they have struggled. Our strategy includes combining standard and non-standard questions, as well as multiple choice misconception-style questions.
