Pupils who have scored on or below Level 4 in their KS2 SATS or who need extra help in consolidating the Key Stage 2 English skills are withdrawn from Mandarin lessons on a weekly basis and work with a specialist teacher or Teaching Assistant in small groups of no more than 5 pupils.
They follow a scheme from the CGP Spelling and Grammar text books.
Their progress is monitored carefully and personalised targets are set by the intervention teacher to ensure progress.
