Extraction sessions

In KS3 students are targeted for intervention support with their reading/spelling and Maths.

Students work in small groups or on a one-to-one basis under the guidance of a Teaching Assistant. This intervention is for a short period and aims to refocus and reintegrate students back into their lessons.

During extraction, students work towards achieving personalised short term targets which focus on key areas including:

  • Raising self-esteem and confidence in the classroom
  • Increasing motivation in the classroom
  • Improving communication and language skills
  • Raising attainment and grades in subjects
  • Improving literacy and numeracy skills
