Focus Time

Focus time will run from 2pm-3pm each day. Focus time allows staff the flexibility to: introduce new experiences to the students; to offer a tutorial in learning that needs embedding; to undertake extended practical activities that aid student discovery or aid prior learning; to attend educational visits.

Focus Time is fundamental to our intervention strategy. It will allow subject teachers to target students who require intervention as their need arises.

You will receive a text message informing you that your son/daughter is required to attend intervention during this time. It is imperative that they attend these sessions or they risk falling further behind and not reaching their potential. Please encourage your son/daughter to take advantage of the opportunity that is being afforded them. Intervention is not intended as student discipline but as an academic aid to success.

In order to support our year 11 students in catching up any gaps in their knowledge, due to time missed because of the pandemic or any other reason, we have timetabled targeted focus time sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
