The funding has a positive impact on the progress made by the students in the catch-up cohort. This progress is tracked by the Year 7 team, the Maths and English teams and the Learning Support team.  Overall good progress was made by the students in the catch-up cohort.

Internal assessments are used to review the literacy and numeracy catch-up cohorts and students are reintegrated into lessons when sufficient progress has been made. 

Learning Support WRAT testing was used and this demonstrated good progress in reading.
