Literacy and Numeracy Catch up Funding
Catch-up Premium Report 2016/2017
A very small proportion of students start at CGSG with Key Stage 2 scores below the national expectation.
£1,215 was received in 2016/2017 in respect of the Catch-up Premium and this has been increased to £1,989 due to the increase in the size of the new Year 7 cohort.
Our internal assessments in 2016/2017 show that those few Year 7 students perform well against their targets, taking into account their lower starting points. Of the six Year 7 students, with the lowest prior attainment on entry, 4 of these reached their minimum expected target and 2 exceeded this target in English. In Maths, all 6 of these students met their minimum expected target and 3 students exceeded this target.
Teaching, support and intervention included:
• ‘In class’ teacher intervention following formal assessments
• Ongoing ‘in class’ teacher support, during class discussions, group work, following up on written work completed in class or for homework
• Additional reading tasks
• Visits to the library and encouragement to read
• Visiting local author to inspire young readers
The Literacy and Numeracy Catch up Funding budget and strategy for 2017/2018 will be uploaded shortly.
