Raising Attainment and Progress (R.A.P.)

Harris Academy Morden is pleased to announce the introduction of R.A.P Club.  A programme primarily based around improving our student’s attainment and progress.

R.A.P Club will run on Wednesday and Thursday evenings and last for two hours beginning at 2.40pm.  The programme’s participants will be reviewed each half term.  Students will complete HW and subject specific catch up work in order to make up progress and raise attainment.  Led by the Academies’ teaching staff and with refreshments provided, we believe the R.A.P Club will provide the very best opportunity for our students to achieve their potential.

Students identified to participate in the R.A.P Club will have failed to make sufficient progress over a number of subjects or alternatively have a sustained record of inadequate homework.  Attendance at R.A.P club is compulsory to ensure attainment and progress levels are addressed quickly.  Students in R.A.P Club will be provided with a report card which describes the expectation of work they will need to complete in each session.  Students will get their report card signed off after each session when the teacher in charge is happy with the quality of work produced.  Discussion with subject leaders, progress measures, attainment scores and homework grades will be measured each half term in order to assess if a student in R.A.P Club needs to continue with the programme. If it is decided that the student’s attainment and progress are at the desired standard, the student will have the option of leaving R.A.P club.

Students identified to be a part of R.A.P club will be given a letter during the first week of each half term informing parents / carers of the programme’s structure and expectations.
