It is the aim of Fisher More to ensure that all pupils reach their full potential. At times pupils will need support or intervention to ensure that ‘All their Bright Colours Can Shine’
The school has an intensive programme of intervention to help pupils. These interventions are undertaken at every level ranging from in-class phase 1 support to intensive 1:1 work with individuals. While the school take a holistic approach to intervention, we categorise the systems into Pastoral and Academic – clearly both types of assistance are closely linked if maximum progress is to be made.
When any adult recognises there is a problem with a pupil, for example attendance, withdrawn, emotional issues, they will discuss the individual with the Director of Progress/Assistant Headteacher. An appropriate action plan will then be put into place.
Any concerns regarding Child Protection must be reported immediately to Mr Walmsley, Mr Swarbrick or Mrs Murphy following the school safeguarding policy.
A specific area where pupils have the chance to develop appropriate pastoral skills and have a chance to speak to appropriate adults.
A number of staff act as mentors to work on areas such as motivation, self-esteem and organisational skills.
Directors of Progress/Form Tutors
Directors of Progress will work with individuals or groups of pupils to develop appropriate skills and work on targeted areas.
The school operates a drop-in surgery every Wednesday lunch. In addition pupils can be referred to the nurse through the Assistant Headteacher.
Pupils can be referred to Mr J Driver, our inclusion manager. Here they can work on personalised learning and support put in place to help pupils.
Personalised Support Plan
When appropriate a personalised support plan can be designed by the Director of Progress to support pupils to overcome specific issues and ensure potential is maximised.
Interventions are targeted sessions tailored to support pupils in order to help them achieve or exceed their target grades or levels. These interventions take place in all year groups with appropriate pupils.
At Fisher More we run a wide range of interventions at classroom, department and whole-school level which are sometimes aimed at specific groups of pupils who have been identified by key staff. Key, current data is used to guide these intervention sessions.
