Inclusion at Ss Peter and Pauls
Interventions at Ss Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School
At Ss Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School we pride ourselves in the range of new, proven and University accredited interventions, which we deliver to support children throughout our school. Below is a summary of those interventions currently utilised by our skilled team of teaching assistants and teaching staff.
1st Class @ Number
A KS1 numeracy intervention to support children in year 2 to secure a level 2 by the end of Key Stage 1.
1st Class @ Number2
A KS2 numeracy intervention to support children in year 3 and higher to secure a level 3 in numeracy.
A Key Stage 1 numeracy intervention, training to commence March 2014.
Success @ Arithmetic
Success @ Arithmetic is a light touch calculation based intervention for learners in upper KS2 and KS3 who are at about level 3C or 3B and have difficulties with arithmetic proficiency. It helps them to make faster progress and to catch up to their peers.
Project x Code
Project x code embeds systematic synthetic phonics into a reading intervention programme through a highly motivational 3D episodic adventure series. This intervention is targeted at struggling readers in Years 2 to 4 who are not on track to achieve appropriate levels for their age.
Read Write Inc Fresh Start is a synthetic phonics intervention programme for pupils from year 5. It follows a similar system to the phonic programme using a 34-module format and text appropriate for older pupils. Staff will be trained to deliver this programme in march 2014.
Fischer Family Trust Literacy (FFT Wave 3)
The aim of FFT Wave 3 is to accelerate learning so that each child makes enough progress in reading and writing in order to access a group intervention and or continue to progress through the whole class/group teaching. At year 1 the gap between a targeted child and the rest of the class will be relatively small, so it is easier to use an effective intervention to accelerate their learning in order to close the gap with their peers.
Successful Reading Partners
The successful reading partnership aims to accelerate children’s progress in reading by pairing a child with a trained reading partner for 10 weeks. The reading partner will read 3 times per week for 30 minutes each session.
A new, fun, highly structured and multi sensory literacy programme for children aged 5-11 years with dyslexia and children that struggle to acquire literacy
A comprehensive programme develops literacy skills by combining successful phonological approaches with the very best of conventional, multi sensory and structured teaching methods.
Nessy Learning Programme.
Nessy learning begins with an assessment to identify areas of need. Once a pupil has set their own learning objectives, they watch a strategy or rule, that explains using humour to reinforce memory. This knowledge is reinforced by a series of games that develop core skills in sequence: phoneme blending, word reading and spelling, rhyming and phonological skills, sentence reading, vocabulary and comprehension.
Heartmath is a biofeedback programme and set of positive breathing &positive emotion techniques. The award winning computer technology is proven to enhance learning, performance and behaviour.
A pragmatic Social Skills Programme for Pupils from years 3-5.Socially Speaking focuses on the development of social and relationship skills, play times, self organisation, regulation and stress management, with an aim to help children better understand the social world around them.
Time to talk
Time to Talk: A Programme to Develop Oral and Social Interaction Skills for Reception and Key Stage One. Time to Talk will allows children to develop their understanding of the ‘rules’ of interaction with the help of Ginger Bear, who features in all the activities. The skills taught include eye contact, sharing, greetings, awareness of feelings, giving and following instructions, listening, attention and play skills.
A playful and practical approach to solving difficulties faced by children. Nearly all difficulties can be seen as skills that need to be developed. Through this programme difficulties are converted into skills and create dynamic and playful partnerships with the child, actively involving the children in skill building and solution finding.
We also pride ourselves on providing Gifted and Talented Clubs throughout the year in a range of activities. We have strong foundations with Calday Grange Grammar School and St Mary's College with Gifted and Talented Opportunities throughout the year.
