Years 7 and 8 Accelerate Curriculum
Students who require more support in their literacy and numeracy are supported by a specialist Accelerate Curriculum. The curriculum is delivered by specialist teachers with the aim of accelerating progress in these two key areas. In Years 7 and 8, students receive two extra literacy and numeracy lessons as part of their core curriculum. Students graduate from the Accelerate Curriculum once they meet the expected standard of literacy and numeracy. Those students who follow the accelerate curriculum still access the full spectrum of the Year 7 curriculum.
The aim of the Accelerate Curriculum has always been to accelerate progress to meet age related expectations where possible. A high quality educational experienced is offered to increase engagement, confidence and academic resilience.
By working closely with the primary schools, together we identify students who we feel would benefit from the Accelerate Curriculum.
Close monitoring of students takes place during the first six weeks and followed by a review to ensure each individual is in the correct place; if students need to move out of the Accelerate Curriculum we make sure this happens as seamlessly as possible ensuring parents/carers are communicated with throughout.
