Year 7 Catch-up Premium 2015/16

As a publicly funded school Heart of England school receives funding called the literacy and numeracy catch-up premium. This gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2. In 2015/16 we received an additional £11,500 in Year 7 Catch Up Premium funding.

Where we spent the Year 7 Catch Up Premium (2015/16):

• Reading and numeracy intervention – 1:1 intervention with a tutor; small group intervention lessons; dedicated reading support
• Curriculum spending to improve reading and numeracy: resources and training
• Electronic Resources with a focus upon developing literacy and reading

Impact of Year 7 Catch Up Premium Funding 2015-16

Reading

25 students joined us in 2015-16 below the nationally expected level for reading at Key Stage 2.
It is not our Policy to set students targets related to GCSE grades at any point in Key Stage 3, rather our Curriculum is designed to diagnose the gaps in skills and understanding and see to remedy these so that they are fully prepared for the rigours of GCSE examinations.

22 of the 25 students made demonstrable progress, demonstrated in their English assessments during the course of the year.

Maths

20 students joined us in 2015-16 below the nationally expected level for maths at Key Stage 2.

It is not our Policy to set students targets related to GCSE grades at any point in Key Stage 3, rather our Curriculum is designed to diagnose the gaps in skills and understanding and see to remedy these so that they are fully prepared for the rigours of GCSE examinations.

15 of the 20 students made demonstrable progress, demonstrated in the maths assessments during the course of the year.
