We use the ‘Switch on to Reading’ scheme to accelerate progress within reading. Children selected are identified as having difficulties with learning to read using phonic strategies and are therefore working below their expected level. Sessions are on a 1:1 basis, last 30 minutes and are carried out every day.
We use a number of interventions; pre and post tutoring to evidence progress and impact, precision teaching, and paired reading; these are delivered 1:1. Through our use of evidence based paired reading we have seen 2 years progress over 12 weeks for some pupils. Precision teaching has been effective where other interventions have failed.
