Pupil  A (School Action Plus)

Pupil A had been identified as being dyslexic and was having one morning a per week at the Dyslexia Centre. He had been making little progress throughout the Primary Phase and was forecast to not meet his targets for the end of Year 6.  Turnabout was used to support and develop his short term memory and organisational skills which have been identified as being an issue.



Pupil  B (School Action)

Pupil B arrived at the school in Year 4 having been screened for dyslexia and was identified as having mild dyslexia.  His main area for improvement was speed of cognition and retention of instructions and information.  Many previous interventions had been used and resulted in little impact (Toe by Toe, ALK) as they didn’t address his particular need.


Pupil  C  (School Action)

Pupil C had been screened for dyslexia and was identified as having mild dyslexia. She has been identified for slow processing speed and had previously been supported by Occupational Therapy.  This had resulted in a lack of self-esteem and confidence. Pupil C has had a series of intervention programmes with little impact on her progress.  Turnabout had been used successfully  in Year 5, and followed again in Year 6.



Pupil D (School Action)

Pupil D was unable to close the gap in achievement in Key Stage 2, which was gradually widening.  Although having been screened for learning problems, none were identified.  Much of his lack of progress has been attributed to a lack of confidence and failure to engage in his learning fully in Years 3-5 due to family problems. This meant that he felt unable to make progress and as a consequence disengaged from his learning.  A number of learning interventions were used, but pupil D made no noticeable progress.  Due to the non-academic focus of Turnabout, he was able to succeed, which had a positive impact his self-esteem. This rise in self-esteem was the catalyst for his improvement.

 With a lower than average number of SEN pupils, this school focuses its Turnabout activity on the pupils who, at the end of Year 4,  appear unlikely to fulfil their potential. These comments and the results below were sent to Turnabout Education by the headteacher.
