Data will be analysed from KS2 SATS information received and new students will be tested to ascertain their levels of ability in literacy and numeracy and, as always, we will ensure that students who need intervention support in literacy and numeracy will obtain a targeted package of support.
A planned intervention programme is already in place and will be implemented to support and enable students who have literacy and numeracy difficulties next year.
