Raising Attainment: STEP Physical Literacy

What is STEP?

STEP has been described as “the most innovative intervention for raising achievement levels in children whose academic performance is in the lower quartile of the classroom”.

It is a unique programme that enhances the traditional interventions that we already offer to our schools such as numeracy, literacy, behaviour and 1-2-1 support.  STEP tackles the physical barriers to learning that are faced by many young people, enabling them to access quality teaching and learning that is already in place. By supporting young people with many of the learning skills they need to tackle low attainment as well as providing specialist support staff, we believe we are uniquely positioned in the sector.

Raising attainment

Our Raising Attainment strategy is focused on improving the life chances of young people in primary, secondary and SEND schools. It supports young people to make good progress and develop the skills, ambition and know-how they need to improve their life chances. We believe that STEP is the key to achieving this, and that’s why we’ve partnered with them. 

We work closely with schools to recruit a wide range of specialist support staff to ensure every pupil has the same opportunity to succeed, with a particular focus on closing the poverty-related attainment gap.

Early interventions and appropriate support raise attainment and give pupils confidence and skills to learn. We have worked closely with our team of clients and experienced school leaders to identify the types of specialist support staff who can make a difference.
