The funding had 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 supported until sufficient progress has been made.
Learning Support WRAT testing was used and this demonstrated good progress in reading. In maths, students were tested and this demonstrated the progress made.
