Year 7 Catch-up Premium Grant

The Department of Education has allocated £500 per student for the number of Year 7 students who did not achieve the expected standard at the end of Key Stage 2 ( which was Level 4 until the summer of 2015 and a scaled score of 100 in the summers of 2016 & 17)  in Reading and / or Maths at Key Stage 2. This is based on Key Stage 2 data and the Autumn Term census.

Children receive a weekly intervention from a named intervention teacher. These interventions include reading interventions e.g Read Write Inc, handwriting, reading mentors and support with homework. This ensures greater personalisation, monitoring and emotional support for key individuals.

Current Year 8 cohort who sat their Year 6 SATS in the summer of 2016

In September 2016 we received a Year 7 catch up allocation which was used to support;

  • 24 children who did not achieve a scaled score of 100 in Reading.
  • 25 children who did not achieve a scaled score of 100 in Writing
  • 22 children who did not achieve a scaled score of 100 in Maths
  • 24 children who did not achieve a scaled score of 100 in SPAG

The impact of interventions are as follows. At the end of Year 7:

Reading: 15 out of the 24 children had achieved the expected standard for the end of Key Stage 2.

Writing: 11 out of the 25 children had achieved the expected standard for the end of Key Stage 2.

Maths: 7 out of the 22 children had achieved the expected standard for the end of Key Stage 2.

SPaG: 8 out of the 24 children had achieved the expected standard for the end of Key Stage 2.
