Year 7 Catch up Funding
We identify students in year 7 as needing to catch up if they arrive at the school
Either: not at expected level (KS2) in reading, writing, grammar or mathematics
Or: not at least Potential grade 5 (CATs) for students without a KS2 score.
During the 2018-19 academic year the school received 24,439. This was spent on:
- learning mentor time;
- lexia programme;
- PSW time in English and Maths;
- small class sizes
- cost of CAT tests
The school is expecting to receive the same level of funding in the 2019-2020 academic year and so we are continuing with this programme throughout this year. And the impact will be monitored by expecting these students to be graded working at least grade 4 in English and/or Maths
- 50% end of year 7
- 60% end of year 8
