Year 7 Numeracy & Literacy Catch-up premium

Year 7 Numeracy & Literacy Catch-up premium

The school received a sum of £12,500 specifically for Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up for the Academic Year 2015-2016.  A programme of intervention was put in place for 21 Year 7 students that achieved below a Level 4 in their Key Stage 2 SATs scores in English Reading and / or Mathematics. 

In 2015-16 the following numbers of students required Catch Up:

  Number of Pupils
English Only 3
Mathematics Only  15
Both English and Mathematics 3

The money was spent in the following was to enable those students to ‘catch up’ with their peers during their first year at secondary school:

  • IDL programme to support dyslexia intervention and weaker literacy
  • Accelerated Reader Programme
  • HLTA 1:1 / group reading and spelling
  • My Maths online learning
  • Specialist small group intervention
  • Summer School
  • LINC Breakfast Learning Club

Impact

88% of the students reached functional reading and 88% reached functional numeracy age by the end of Year 7.

Where progress has not been made, support continues in subsequent year groups.

2016-2017

This academic year the following students are part of the Catch Up Intervention programme.
