This leaflet gives guidance on effective practice on organizing literacy and numeracy booster classes for pupils in Year 6 schools in England. The literacy and booster program is designed to provide extra, targeted support to those pupils in Year 6 who, without the benefit of the Literacy Hour and daily mathematics lesson since the beginning of their primary schooling, are unlikely to achieve Level 4 at the end of Key Stage 2. The leaflet does not prescribe any one particular approach but gives guidance on a range of issues that headteachers, literacy and numeracy coordinators and others involved in organizing booster classes should consider when setting up their own programs. Sections of the leaflet discuss the impact of the booster program, deciding which pupils to target, deciding what to teach, deciding who should support pupils, deciding when to hold booster classes, deciding the frequency and duration of lessons, involving parents, and conclusion.
