Y7 numeracy and literacy catch-up (2019-20)

Funding received £11,437.

Students with KS2 standardised scores below 100 are identified with a view to being able to benefit from catch up funding which will be used for interventions and support in English and/or maths.

This grant has been used to support additional staffing and educational resources in English, maths and within SEND team. It helps to fund additional time for teaching assistants and has allowed an additional group to be created for a small teaching group within the English faculty. 

In English, of 192 students 46 had scores below 100. In mathematics, 45 students were below 100 for KS2 results. 

By the end of Y7 in English 90.5% of these 46 students made progress and were assessed to be on or above their predicted pathway. In maths 93% of the 45 students were on or above their predicted pathway. These students will continue to be monitored over their remaining two years and appropriate interventions implemented where necessary.

Our provision included reduced class sizes, LSA support, reading buddies and a specialist SEN teacher. Individual sessions (1:1) were also in place, particularly for reading and spelling. Small group work was carried out in maths (Breakfast Maths and afterschool) – both faculties benefit from specialist TAs who continue to develop their skills within the faculties and liaise with the teaching staff regularly.

To support the whole school curriculum handwriting intervention was also introduced.


*Pupil premium funding is not allocated to schools based on the school year (Sept-Aug). Pupil premium funding is allocated by central government and therefore alligned to their financial year which is April to March. This means that the figure quoted is an estimation based on actual income and expected (based on predicted figures for number of Y6 students who are PP).
