 English Enhancement

Key Stage 3 English

English occurs in KS3. Students are allocated the extra support of English as a result of standardised testing, teacher assessment or prior attainment. These students will follow the normal KS3 English curriculum, but will take English in order to assist their progress and raise their attainment.  


The English programme will address specific areas of weakness, most commonly, reading comprehension, grammar and consistent verb tense; teacher student ratios will be kept as low as possible and, when available, other support teachers will be used. Should a student no longer be deemed to require English, they will return to the full KS3 timetable and take another language option. 


Assessment is ongoing in order to ascertain progress and suitability. Should a student complete the academic year in English there will be an end of year internal examination.
