Strategies

IVC Booster Programme (main use of funding)

All students identified (on entry) study only one language on entry to IVC. They receive additional hours of English and Maths teaching from a Specialist teacher, to develop their Literacy and Numeracy.  This is on a rolling programme, with the combined hours for English and Maths as follows: Y7- 3hrs per/fortnight, Y8- 2 hrs p/f, Y9- 6hrs p/f, Y10- 4hrs p/f. This will continue on a rolling programme, so that a student who started with us from September 2015 onwards will access nearly 700 hours of additional specialist teaching by the time they leave us in Y11. In addition to this we run functional skills/foundation learning for our very weakest students.

Appointment of Primary/Transition Leads

We have appointed Lead Teachers for Primary Transition into English, Maths and Science to support our staff in understanding the new KS2 curriculum, to ensure that our Year 7 programme allows students to make excellent progress from the outset, without the ‘lag’ or ‘dip’ that can often happen. It also allows us to monitor individuals and gain a clear understanding of how students are supported in Year 6 and what interventions have been effective, so we can continue them when students join us in Year 7.

At IVC we recognise the importance of sustaining the progress made in Year 7 to ensure that students reach their full potential. We continue to track the progress of our Booster students as they move through the programme.
