Year 7 Catch Up Premium

Academic Year 2018-2019

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 2018-19 we have been allocated £8608 based on the need of our intake.  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 2019. 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.
