Outstanding? With SAM Learning it’s Twice as Likely
Since its inception, SAM Learning has led the way in terms of helping close the gap between disadvantaged students and other students within our subscribing schools.
A huge part of the SAM Learning process revolves around instilling students with not only the knowledge but also the confidence to succeed, raising aspirations in school and beyond. The SAM Learning method is independently proven to help close the gap. We do it by providing market-leading written exam practice, award-winning content that builds upon existing knowledge, and through our engaging game mechanic that promotes engagement and friendly competition.
With only 38% of disadvantaged students gaining 5 ‘good’ GCSE grades compared to 65% of other students, there is still work to be done nationwide. Yet, SAM Learning subscribers from an area considered disadvantaged by Ofsted are more than twice as likely to receive a Grade 1 (Outstanding) evaluation than non-users, proving that the service is a valuable part of any Pupil Premium programme.
FSM students who use SAM Learning see some of the greatest improvement of all our student users, achieving, on average, 3.5 grades higher than expected.
