Catch Up Premium

Year 7 Catchup - 2019 - 2020 with Planned Spend

In September 2019, 40 pupils were eligible to receive ‘catch-up funding. This equates to £X (TBC by DfE) in funding.

36 students scored below 100 in their end of KS2 English Assessments, 23 students scored below 100 in their end of KS2 Maths Assessments and 19 scored below 100 in both tests.

The following interventions have been put in place for the students with a reading score below 100:

  • Differentiated quality first teaching by class teacher.
  • Ability based teaching groups ensuring that the least able have most contact with the class teacher and TA. 
  • Intervention English group established.
  • Designated Literacy lesson created for new year 7 pupils
  • Teaching Assistant support in English for all those eligible for Catch-up Premium
  • Small group reading support within English lessons.
  • Accelerated Reading programme
  • Word Shark (£96)
  • Achieve3000 online literacy programme (£850 annual licence fee)

The following interventions have been put in place for the students with a Maths score below 100:

  • Differentiated quality first teaching by class teacher.
  • Ability based teaching groups ensuring that the least able have most contact with the class teacher or TA. 
  • Teaching Assistant support in Maths
  • Numbershark (£96)
  • NumberGym (£95)
  • My9 Maths (£1200 Annual Licence fee)

All students who scored below 100 in their end of KS2 reading and/or Maths test will be re-assessed at the end of the Summer Term using end of year examinations. Their results will be compared to a sample of pupils that arrived at the school with a standardised score of 100. This data, alongside department mark books, will be used to measure the extent at which the catch-up group have ‘caught up’.

Those students who do not reach the expected level in reading and/or Maths will receive further intervention when they move into year 8.  Total planned spend to date: £2788
