Year 7 Catch Up Premium
Year 7 catch-up premium is additional to the main school funding and is targeted for
each student in Year 7 who did not achieve the expected level in reading and/or
Mathematics at Key Stage 2.
Year 7 Catch-Up Premium – 2017-18 Outcomes
For the financial year 2017/18 the school received £13,000 (matched to 2015-16 funding) in catch-up premium funding. This is designed to support students who have not reached the expected level in English and/or Maths at Key Stage 2.
The impact of our interventions has been generally successful and will be adapted to increase progress for 2018/19.
Plans for 2018-19
For the current academic year (anticipated funding of £13,000), alongside the interventions of last year, we will also:
- Increase the focus on Year 7 class support and tuition.
- Smaller classes in year 7 Maths to support those most I need.
- Withdrawal of target pupils from MFL for additional literacy support.
- Liaise with subject teams to develop common approaches to literacy and numeracy across the curriculum.
- Delivery of additional literacy and numeracy through form time.
