Services For Education offers a wide range of teacher and pupil support to enable you to maximise the impact of catch-up funding and opportunities. We have structured our offer to mirror the EEF Guide to Supporting School Planning which aims to support school leaders with their planning for the year 2021.

We believe that its tiered model that focuses on high quality teaching, targeted academic support and wider strategies provides the best route for enabling children to overcome the impact of school closures and the disruption to learning over the last 12 months.

In their guide to supporting school planning, the EEF indicate that great teaching is the most important lever schools have to improve outcomes for their pupils. The report identifies the importance of having deep subject knowledge and a flexible understanding of the content being taught, alongside the key components of explicit instruction, scaffolding, flexible grouping and cognitive and metacognitive strategies.

As a consequence of the lockdown, pupils’ learning and their journey through the curriculum has been massively disrupted.

The EEF report that evidence consistently shows the positive impact that targeted academic support can have, including for those pupils who are not making good progress across the spectrum of achievement. Planning targeted academic support, including how to link one-to-one or small group interventions into classroom teaching, will be a key component of effective planning for this academic year.

The EEF state that ‘Generally, the use of TAs to deliver high quality interventions, which complement the work of the teacher, is a ‘best bet’ and could be a powerful way of mitigating any impacts of time away from school and see positive gains for pupils.’
