Is Sparx appropriate for low attaining/non secondary ready students?

Sparx Maths supports students who are not secondary ready - we have content specifically written for students who achieve a scaled score of between 80 and 99 in their Key Stage 2 maths exam. Non-secondary ready students have made up around 20% of each of our incoming Year 7 cohorts to date.

If, however, a student has been deemed too weak to sit a Key Stage 2 maths exam, or failed to achieve a scaled score of 80 in Maths, then Sparx may not be right for them. In this case, we would recommend setting them alternative homework at their level.
