Year 7 Catch-Up Premium

Year 7 catch-up premium is also 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 - 2015 Outcomes

For the financial year 2015/16 the school received £11,500 (£500 per student) 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 2016/17.

At Claydon High School 57 students who were below Level 4 received catch-up premium for either English or Maths or both.

English

  • 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.

Maths

  • 30 students received intervention and 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.

 

2016 Plans

For the current academic year, 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.
  • Appoint a numeracy lead teacher.
  • Begin ‘word warriors’ and ‘maths ninjas’ clubs.
  • Change the curriculum structure for Year 7 to allow us to target support.
  • Created bespoke literacy and numeracy lessons within the curriculum.

Cross Country Success

Congratulations to Josh, Lee and Leon who represented not only Claydon High School but also Suffolk in the inter and minor boys races at the Anglian Cross Country Championships, held on Saturday 4th February at Abingdon Park, Northampton. Representing the county is a huge achievement for the boys and it was a particularly tough course to run. They all performed really well with very respectable finishes in 22nd, 44th and 53rd place. Well done!
