Year 7 Catch Up Premium
Year 7 catch-up premium is additional to the main school funding and is targeted for each student in Year 7 who did not achieve at least Level 4 in reading and/or Mathematics at Key Stage 2.
Year 7 Catch-Up Premium – 2016-17 Outcomes
For the financial year 2016/17 the school received £11,500 (matched to 2015-16 funding) in catch-up premium funding. This is designed to support students who have not reached Level 4 in English and/or Maths at Key Stage 2. The impact of our interventions has been generally successful and will be adapted to increase progress for 2017/18.
At Claydon High School 41 students who were below Level 4 received catch-up premium for either English or Maths or both.
- 27 students received intervention and additional support.
- 93% of students made positive progress.
- 26% of students made more than expected progress and exceeded their targets.
- 30 students received intervention and additional support.
- 60% of students made positive progress and therefore a number of students will continue with support into Year 8.
English & Maths
- 17 students received support in both subjects.
- 82% made progress in both subjects.
- 94% made progress in English.
- 82% made progress in Maths.
- In addition all Year 7s undertook ‘numeracy ninjas’.
Plans for 2017-18
For the current academic year (anticipated funding of £11,500), alongside the interventions of last year, we will also:
- Increase the focus on Year 7 class support and tuition.
- Purchase new assessment materials for group intervention sessions.
- Target the use of LSAs to support ‘catch-up’ students in lessons.
- Liaise with subject teams to develop common approaches to literacy and numeracy across the curriculum using new look school planner.
- Raise the profile of lifelong learning skills to “Be the Best for Life”.
- Change the curriculum structure for Year 7 to allow us to target support.
