Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy catch up

Year 7 Catch-up Funding 2018/19 Evaluation

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 mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2.  In 2018 Copley was allocated £8054.  The money was allocated in the following ways:

  1. The TLR structure in English includes a post of responsibility for staff, who are charged with monitoring and evaluating the progress of Year 7 catch-up pupils and to plan interventions.  Additional TLR holder to plan and deliver intervention sessions.
  2. The interventions in English have included Accelerated Reader, dedicated library lessons and Additional Language lessons at KS3 for targeted groups.
  3. In maths, smaller class sizes for lower ability students plus specific and personalised differentiated resources to ensure access to the curriculum and target specific areas of weakness.  Additional numeracy and fluency testing to assess progress with the basics.
  4. Numeracy catch-up IT package for the SEND department to use with targeted pupils.
  5. The impact of these strategies is reviewed and the results will inform planning for the following year.
