Within EDLounge we offer transition lessons for Year 6 and 7 students who are having literacy and numeracy learning issues that could potentially affect their individual progress.
The pathways serve to enhance student attainment and development over time where the students can work within school, at home or with the one-to-one help and support from an EDLounge Support Officer. Each student’s answers, issues, problems, knowledge and understanding are tracked, recorded and monitored in a range of graphical aspects to show all types of progress.
Why we are focusing on Transition in EDLounge
The transition aspect was the vision of several academy head teachers to help raise the standards of their primary school students' English and Maths development as they were approaching Year 7. The low levels of knowledge and understanding in these subjects had seriously hampered development in a large number of students throughout Key Stage 3 and especially in Year 7, which had a massive impact on personal development, as these problems extended to other subjects in which English and math skills were incorporated.
