Secondary English – Nipping ‘The Gap’ in the bud

In your current Year 7 cohort there will be a group of vulnerable pupils, most likely disadvantaged, who were achieving well in Year 6.

Experience and data suggests that the attainment gap between these Year 7 pupils and the rest will now begin to grow.

So, what exactly was it about the learning environment of primary school which enabled these pupils to flourish?

How can we replicate this supportive environment in Year 7 to support transition and ensure continued progress?
