Within EDLounge we offer transition lessons for Year 6 and 7 learners who are having literacy and numeracy learning issues that could potentially affect their individual progress.
The pathways serve to enhance learners' attainment and development over time where the learners can work within school, at home or with the one-to-one help and support from an EDLounge Support Officer/teacher. Each learner’s answers, chats, issues, attainment, 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 attainment in their primary school learners' English and Maths as they were approaching Year 7. The level of knowledge and understanding in these subjects had seriously hampered development in a large number of learners 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 maths skills were important.
