Year 7 Catch Up Premium
Intended spend for 2016/17
In 2016 to 2017 schools will receive the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2015 to 2016, adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort, based on the October 2016 census.
We have identified students as being in need of intervention as those achieving less than 100 in either their English or Maths KS2 tests.
Funding received for 2015/2016
The Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.
The minimum expected progress is 2 sub levels of progress each year.
For those learners who do not make the expected progress, additional screening and further interventions will be put in place.
In 2015/16 Notre Dame received £12,000.00 of Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium Funding. This was used to fund a range of student support, activities and interventions in year 7. The students that received the funding were supported in the following ways:
- Learning Support Assistants support targeted children in the classroom and in addition run after school intervention for year 7 who have underachieved in Literacy and Numeracy.
- Summer School Literacy Programme ran for 2 weeks in the summer break specifically for year 6 pupils who did not gain a level 4 at key stage 2. This was delivered by Learning Support Assistants.
- All year 7 classes have timetabled Literacy and Numeracy lessons delivered by English and Mathematics specialists in the first term. This can be extended.
- Lexia is used with the targeted students in year 7.
- After school clubs.
- Additional EAL support.
Impact was evaluated using the school’s data, and assessment tracking system where progress was measured using the school’s assessment policy.
15 pupils were targeted for both Literacy and Numeracy whilst 2 pupils were targeted for Literacy only and 4 pupils targeted for Numeracy only.
94% of pupils targeted for Catch Up Premium in Literacy made at least the progress expected (one pupil did not). The average progress made in English was 3.2 sub levels of progress.
53% of pupils targeted for Catch Up Premium in Numeracy made the expected progress (9 pupils did not.) The average progress made in Maths was 2 sub levels of progress.
In 2014/15 Notre Dame received Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium Funding. This was used to fund a range of student support, activities and interventions in year 7.
