Year 7 Catch Up

Year 7 Catch Up funding is provided to support the progress of students arriving in Year 7 who are not yet secondary ready (NSR). These are students who did not achieve the required level in English and/ or Maths at the end of Year 6.

In the Academic Year 2016-2017 the catch up funding provided was £7,000.

Key expenditure

The funding was used, alongside the main school budget, to pay for the support and intervention in Year 7 English and Maths lessons. It paid for extra 1-1 sessions in the two core subjects from fully qualified teachers. It has also allowed us to create a smaller ‘nurture’ group in Maths and ‘English’ where alternative curriculum provision could be used.

Attainment and Progress

In English 90% of eligible pupils have progressed to the required level and are now deemed to be secondary ready.

In Maths 90% of eligible pupils progressed to the required level and are now deemed to be secondary ready.

Summary

The statistical relevance of this data is somewhat flawed due to the small size of the sample group.

In the Academic Year 2017-2018 the projected catch up funding is £7,000.
