How does the school measure success?
The school tracks the progress of all students, including students in this particular group. Success is evidenced by the outcomes for these students which demonstrates that they are making progress similar to, or in some cases better than their peers in the school and above average nationally. All students, regardless of catch-up eligibility, took part in extra-curricular activities.
At the end of their first year our cohort of four catch up premium students had all caught up to at least level 4 or better in both English and mathematics.
31 students joined Y7 having not met national standards in English at the end of Y6.
All of those students have now reached those standards and 30 made better than expected progress. The majority of these made much better than expected progress and are working at Grade 2 or even Grade 3 GCSE standard.
33 students joined Y7 having not met national standards in Mathematics at the end of Year 6.
30 of these have made progress this year with 22 achieving or exceeding expected progress. 17 are now at, above or well above the end of Y6 standards.
