Pupils are assessed on admission; CATs tests, reading age and comprehension age are assessed. Should the data identify that there is a year 7 pupil who has not met literacy targets for year 6, a WRAT test would be administered and subsequent scores would be used to develop personalised intervention.

All year 7 pupils receive a functional literacy lesson per week as part of their normal timetable.

Additional one to one specialised support can also be delivered where appropriate.
