This is where we offer an extended experience and subject expertise support for a whole, immersive day. This could be with pupils either at Shireland or in house at your school depending on the subject and resources and would best suit pupils in Years 4 or 5.

We offer these subjects:-

Arts - 5 staff available. 2xArt, 1xMusic, 1xDance, 1xDrama

Computing/ICT - 6 staff available

Design Technology - 4 staff available

Mathematics - 7 staff available

PE - 6 staff available

Science - 6 staff available

In Mathematics we can offer a day of CPD for staff particularly the more able (Level 6). This would be with a former Local Authority Mathematics Advisor. Please note that there is a limit of 20 spaces.

Please call Kirsty Tonks on 0121 565 8816 for further information.

Gifted and Talented Core Subject Support

Shireland will pay for one to one online personal tuition support with their Partner Tute.Com for your G and T identified pupils in Mathematics and English. These are either current Year 6 pupils who are coming to Shireland next year or Year 5 pupils.

Tute is an online tutoring platform with UK based tutors and can support more able or gifted and talented children through targeted aspects of the curriculum aimed at extension and enrichment.

The platform is web-based and highly interactive and allows more able pupils the opportunity to get specialist support in a group situation rather than one to one during a focused session.

The lessons help to foster peer-to-peer learning and collaboration. We have had a great deal of success using Tute at Shireland.

We aim to offer up to:

10 sessions x English – max 12 pupils

10 sessions x Mathematics – max 12 pupils

This will be dependent on the number of form of entry and would be the equivalent value of up to £1,000 of tutoring.
