Year 7 Catch-up Premium: 2016/17
Year 7 Catch-up Premium Grant Report: 2016/17
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 math at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). In the past this figure has been set at £500 per student.
At Langdon Academy this year we have identified 69 students who will require this funding.
• A reading intervention programme: Renaissance Learning
• Small group intensive support on ‘reading for meaning/pleasure’;
• The purchase of texts and resources for small, specifically focused classes in English and Mathematics (extra time given across the curriculum); and,
• 1:1 reading mentors programme.
In 2015-16 the allocation of funds for this purpose to Langdon Academy was £34,900 (69 Students).
The impact of the intervention was tracked through rigorous data collection throughout the year. By July 2016, there was evidence that the funding had a clear impact on the progress of the students. In English and mathematics students are making progress in line with or above that of similar students nationally. We are committed to continuing to monitor the progress of these students through our accelerated reader programme in English and intervening were necessary
In 2014/15, the allocation was £12,500 (25 Students)
