Boosting Reading Potential (BRP)
BRP is a short term 10 week 1-1 programme that provides intensive support for selected pupils who are in danger of falling behind in reading. It is for pupils who can read but not very efficiently, or without understanding and enjoyment. The main aim is to develop independent reading, comprehension skills and strategies and to enable pupils to access a wider range of reading material more confidently.
The BRP programme is a light touch intervention for pupils who do not need the intensive support of Reading Recovery. BRP can also offer some further support for those who have finished the Reading Recovery programme to help them make the transition back to classroom teaching. BRP is delivered outside the classroom by a trained Teaching Assistant three times a week.
1stClass@Number is a light touch maths intervention. It aims to help children in years 1 to 4 who have moderate difficulties in maths to make faster progress and to catch up with their peers.
A specially trained Teaching Assistant delivers 1stClass@Number to a small group of children, three times a week, outside the classroom as a supplement to their daily maths lessons. Children receive about 24 lessons in about eight weeks. The programme complements Numbers Count, the intensive, teacher-led intervention for children who have the greatest difficulty in maths.
Success@Arithmetic is a light touch calculation-based intervention for learners in years 5 and 6 who have difficulties with arithmetic proficiency. It helps them to make accelerated progress to catch up with their peers and become confident at calculation.
A specially trained Teaching Assistant delivers Success@Arithmetic to a small group of children, three times a week, outside the classroom as a supplement to their daily maths lessons. The programme runs for about 8 weeks.
