Raising Attainment

As year 11 students enter their final year at Northfield School, it is important that they are supported by staff and parents to achieve their full academic potential.

Northfield School has introduced a number of programmes aimed to support identified groups of students. By actively participating in these programmes students will benefit from increased individualised guidance and targeted support, including after-school study sessions. Northfield School’s programme of after school and lunchtime drop in clubs is fully inclusive and open to all students. Any student underachieving in their subjects should seek to improve their results by taking the opportunity to visit the ‘drop in’ clubs detailed on the Raising Achievement Timetable. All subject areas provide times during or after school when any student can get help with their studies.  If students find that there is a clash between subjects they need to attend on the Raising Achievement timetable then they should seek guidance from their Form Tutor or Head of Year. The timetable of after-school study sessions is included each week in the Raising Achievement newsletter which will be placed on the web site.

Raising Achievement however is not just for year 11. It is essential that all students meet their targets each year. Targets are set in September and progress monitored each half term, students who are not on track to meet targets are identified by subject teacher and tutors. A programme of intervention is put in place to ensure that they will meet their target , this can take the form of report, extra session or targeted activities in lessons. Parents are informed of the progress of students against their target each half term.

If you have any queries about the Raising Achievement programme please contact initially the Form Tutor or Head of Year.
