Here at Tottington High School we are always striving to find ways to help students reach their potential. We will be offering an intervention programme remotely to some students after half term. In the Intervention section of the website you will find information to parents and a subject timetable. Miss Postle has provided a video to explain the programme in more detail. You will also find extra support to help you prepare for mock exams and end of year assessments.
After half term staff will be posting videos on the following:
- Revision skills and techniques
- Organisation and time management
- Command words
- Positive mindset
Parents will receive a text message from school only if their child has been selected to take part in Intervention sessions. We will be adjusting the list of students eligible for intervention and informing parents every few weeks as the students’ need for intervention changes.
