Impact Project

HELPING YOUR CHILD THE BEST WAY YOU CAN…

Parents have far more influence over their child’s achievement than school can ever have…

Impact in Learning is an award-winning national parental engagement strategy that recognises this indisputable fact. It has proven to raise attainment, by involving parents more effectively in their children’s learning, and giving them a deeper understanding of how children learn and what is expected of them.

A range of tried and tested homework resources, modelled and explained through parental workshops, have enabled hundreds of schools to raise attainment for pupils in a matter of weeks.

This year, Ryders Hayes has been working closely with each and every one of its 460 pupils and their parents (or another responsible adult representing them), from Nursery to Year 6, through a series of joint workshops in English and Maths with the year group team.

  • All of our staff have been trained by Roy Broadfield, Chief Consultant for Impact in Learning
  •  Each family has received a resource pack to take home containing a 6 week programme of fun activities to do together
  •  Activities have been returned to school weekly for the teacher to review
  • Progress is being measured after 6 weeks

Our Autumn 2013 results show that over 70% of our pupils progressed a total of one or more sub levels in just six weeks.

91% of parents attended the Impact sessions, increasing to 99% with non-attenders followed up by separate consultation.  Of them  –

99% said that they enjoyed having the opportunity to come into school to work with their child.

96% said that they think the resource pack will be useful for their child’s homework.

92% said that they now feel more confident about helping their child with writing/reading/maths at home.

Teachers reported that the even pupils that made less than one sub levels progress had still improved.

Feedback from teachers suggests that the improvements have been sustained in class; children are more confident, and that parents are keen to become more involved in their child’s learning and the life of the school as a result.
