Year 7 Catch-up Premium Grant

Catch Up Premium Grant

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

Current Year 8 cohort who sat their Year 6 SATS in the summer of 2015

In September 2015 we received a Year 7 catch up allocation which was used to support;

  • 14 children who did not reach a Level 4 in Reading
  • 26 children who did not reach a Level 4 in Writing
  • 24 children who did not reach a Level 4 in Maths
  • 39 children who did not reach a Level 4 in SPAG

Since September 2015, these children received a weekly intervention from a named intervention teacher. These interventions included reading interventions e.g Read Write Inc, handwriting, reading mentors and support with homework. This ensured greater personalisation, monitoring and emotional support for key individuals.

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

  • In Reading, 7 children are continuing to work towards the expected standard, equivalent to Level 4.
  • In Writing, 15 children are continuing to work towards the expected standard, equivalent to Level 4
  • In Maths, 16 children are continuing to work towards the expected standard, equivalent to Level 4
  • IN SPAG, 16 children are continuing to work towards the expected standard, equivalent to Level 4

These students continue to be supported in Year 8.
