Event Description
The curriculum states that the majority of pupils will move broadly at the same pace. Not only is this challenging for some pupils, it places a huge demand on teachers and school leaders to secure a greater proportion of age-related pupils. Managing and providing opportunity for the right intervention, particularly for vulnerable pupils such as SEND, FSM, PPG and those at risk of not making expected progress, is essential.

The keystone of mathematics learning is place value and if pupils have gaps in this learning it has an impact on all other maths learning. This course will provide a comprehensive diagnostic assessment that once completed will accurately identify gaps in learning. The assessment covers place value learning up to Year 3. Training will be provided in how to analyse the data and create a personalised intervention plan and how to make the most of the provided comprehensive teacher guidance.

These resources have been successfully used by schools who reported that they significantly changed the way they assessed for and delivered interventions. The cost of the course includes training, the diagnostic assessment, spreadsheets to record and analyse pupil’s responses and teacher guidance linked to every diagnostic question. Attendees will receive digital versions of this.
