Statement of intent
MPCT intends to continue Learner Support Friday (LSF) sessions, whereby small groups of up to 5 learners (aged 16-19), whose learning has been disrupted as a result of Covid-19, will attend additional maths and English tuition, and other pastoral care.
MPCT will develop a robust curriculum that actively promotes engagement with maths and English, and other areas of SEND, to accelerate learning and to prevent any further disruption to learner progress.
Priority will be afforded to learners who are yet to achieve a GCSE grade 4 or 5 in English and/or maths in the first instance.
Additional sessions will also provide tuition to those learners who have a grade 4 or above in English and/or maths, are from an economically disadvantaged background and would need catch-up support and include those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
What we intend to do
Learners deemed eligible for the tuition will attend additional learning sessions on a Friday in their designated centre or if the need arises, as during Covid-19 lockdowns, through virtually delivered through Teams. Tutors will deliver the small group sessions; delivery will be individualised and focused to develop skills required on each learner’s individual learning plan and/or EHCP.
The additional funding will provide the opportunity to accelerate maths and English development, providing learners further help to achieve good results and to fulfil their career aspirations.
How we will do it
Learner small group tutorials (no more than 5) will actively provide learners with wider study skills in preparation for internal and external assessments relating to their chosen careers. Learners will complete tasks and take part in activities tailored to support and develop their own skills in support of their chosen vocational route and career aspiration. This support will enhance and develop self-confidence in their abilities and broaden their horizons and embrace the future.
