Differentiation & Personalisation

FreshSteps seeks to ensure that an alternative curriculum is delivered and that lessons are well planned, engaging and challenge all students whatever their ability. The school is flexible in its approach to grouping students by aptitude, believing one size does not fit all. Maths, Science, English and Design and Technology; ICT and PSHE all operate some form of “differentiated groups” of students in order to ensure that individual progress is maximised and individual needs met.

If we feel any student is falling behind or requires more attention; we put in place a variety of interventions which may be classroom based or exist at other times in the school day/after school and during some holidays.
