Catch-up Premium

Year 7 Catch-Up Premium

The Year 7 Catch-Up premium provides additional funding to schools to accelerate the progress of identified pupils in English and Mathematics. The funding is aimed at Year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least level 4 in the Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests in reading and/or mathematics.  The funding enables the school to deliver additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support in small groups, for those pupils that most need it, so that they catch up with their peers.

 

Year 7 Catch-Up Premium 2015-16

We have identified 39 pupils eligible for the catch-up premium in the academic year 2015-16. This is made up from:

Literacy ONLY 11 pupils
Numeracy ONLY 11 pupils
BOTH Literacy and Numeracy 17 pupils

The amount of funding for 2015-16 will be £19,500. We plan to spend this in a variety of ways, including:

  • Reading Intervention (Switch On)

We  measured the impact of progress at set points throughout the year for the identified pupils. The impact was:

Numeracy

54% of pupils achieved at least a Level 4 (18 Pupils)
3 sub-levels of progress (Above expected progress)  11 Pupils (34%)
2 sub-levels of progress ( Expected progress)  16 Pupils (48%)
