  • Increase in the number of students accessing essential literacy support. Students who were eligible for re-assessment over a six month period each demonstrated an average increase of eight months relative to their chronological age.
  • A wider scope of tracking of student numeracy skills as the basis for a planned focus on teacher professional learning within this area.
