Year 7 Catch-Up Funding

Year 7 Catch Up Funding has been spent on providing additional literacy and numeracy support for students in Key Stage 3 who achieved less than a L4 in their KS2 SAT’s.

  • Reading intervention classes run during intervention/enrichment time for targeted students in Year 7 and 8.
  • Targeted literacy support is also provided for low ability Year 9 students to enable them to make appropriate progress through the Key Stage.
  • An additional English and Maths lesson has been incorporated into the curriculum for all Year 7 and 8 students.
  • Tracking from 2015/16 indicates that 84% of Year 7 students who achieved less than Level 4 in KS2 English SATs achieved the equivalent of Level 4 by the end of Year 7. Those who didn’t were 1 sub level away and are predicted to reach the required standard by November in Year 8.
  • Tracking from 2015/16 indicates that 56% of Year 7 students who achieved less than Level 4 in KS2 Maths SATs achieved the equivalent of Level 4 by the end of Year 7.
