Year 7 Catch Up Premium

Academic Year 2019-2020

The Year 7 Catch-Up Funding is a government initiative designed to target resources on those students who have not met expectations in the Key Stage 2 tests in English and Maths.

For 2019-2020 we have been allocated £9,953 based on our intake of 170 students. Students’ progress is monitored carefully to ensure that the Catch up programme is having impact. Outlined below is the intake information for this year group and how the school plans to use this funding to support our students. The Year 7 Catch Up strategy will be reviewed fully to evaluate its impact and to inform planning for September 2020. Ongoing monitoring will take place as part of our regular strategic evaluation to ensure pupils make progress.

Reviewing Academic Year 2017-2018

The Year 7 Catch Up Funding is a government initiative designed to target resources on those students who have not met expectations in the Key Stage 2 tests in English and Maths. Previously, the Department for Education (DFE) provided us with an additional £500 for each student below Level 4 in reading and maths so that we could deliver extra support to help these students to ‘catch up’.

This has changed in that the funding allocation is now not a set amount per pupil but a percentage of intake. We received £6128 initially, as we did in the academic year 2016-2017. However due to an increase in pupil numbers we received an additional payment taking the grant to £8,608 in total for the full 2017-2018 academic year.

Provision has been adapted during the year in light of both the additional funding, and to increase impact following careful monitoring of pupil progress, to ensure that the Catch up programme is moving our pupils forward. The details of how the school used this funding to support our students and boost their English, Maths and basic skills are outlined below. The Year 7 Catch Up strategy is reviewed fully to evaluate its impact and to inform future planning.

Literacy Provision additional class for 2 hours per week to allow true literacy ability grouping offering Read to Achieve, Accelerated Reader and / or Corrective reading and Comprehension Programmes depending on Pupil Needs£4000
Numeracy / Maths
1 lesson of maths intervention by specialist maths teacher (HOD) for students from mathematics creating two small numeracy groups of 6-8 pupils once per week. SENDCO teaching 16 pupils with most numerical need since January, who are now grouped together as one set.
£2000
  • Students received a numeracy lesson in two small groups allowing them to work on individual skills and breakdown numeracy barriers to allow more independent working and curriculum access, this also including the assessment of pupils with long standing numerical challenges through the use of maths recovery.
  • 91% of catch-up students were at expected standard based on their KS2 starting point. This was achieved by the end of the summer term when measured against their challenging end of year targets in Maths.
