How does the school know if students need extra help?
Bishop Heber High School has an excellent relationship with our partner primary schools ensuring that transition is a success for all our students. The Inclusion Resource Provision (IRP) Transition Team and Head of Year 7 work with families, students and primary schools to ensure a smooth transition for the most vulnerable group of children and their families. Information sharing is imperative to facilitate this.
All Year 7 students are tested at the start of their high school career using standardised and current testing – the data helps to set targets and identify any potential additional needs. In addition, on-going assessment of their reading ability is monitored on the Accelerated Reader programme.
