Year 7 Catch Up Funding

Catch up funding statement for 2016-2017

In the academic year of 2016/2017 the academy received £8580 in Catch-Up funding. This money was spent supporting students who arrived at the academy below national expectations in reading and maths through small-group interventions.

There were twelve students who were identified as needing extra support in maths and seventeen students who were identified as needing extra support with their reading. Of the twelve students who accessed support in Maths, 92% showed progress over a six month period. The intervention programme Passport Maths was used to support this success.

Of the seventeen students in Year 7 who struggled with reading, 71% made progress. Nineteen students were identified through the Renaissance Reading programme as working below age related expectations. These students were placed in small group intervention following a variety of programmes depending on the students’ literacy and learning needs. Of the nineteen students, 78% made progress over an eight month period.

The intervention programmes continue to work along the mastery approach in the English and Maths classrooms.
