When a student joins Eltham Hill School in Year 7, we scrutinise all of the Key Stage 2 data that arrives with them and we identify the students who are not deemed ‘secondary school ready’. These are students who do not achieve at least 100 (level 4 in legacy assessment) in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.
To rectify this and ensure that these students ‘catch up’ with their peers, we have put in place a number of extra classes and strategies.
Please view the document below to see how the funding is used.
