In English, in addition to supported classroom activities and quality first teaching, catch-up students were also supported by our Reading and Phonics programmes – which aims to accelerate reading age. Spelling groups and targeted phonic work were developed, so that pupils were learning with peers of similar ability.
In Maths, catch-up students were provided with additional support beyond quality first teaching. Activities with Maths’ intervention groups were overseen by our Maths team.
As the data below demonstrates, the vast majority of pupils made expected or better progress in Maths and English, therefore we will continue with similar interventions for the next academic year.
