Year 7 Catch up Funding Strategy

Year 7 catch up funding spending 2019 / 2020
Number of children who did not achieve age expected in reading and /or maths level in KS2 9
Current grant £5,000
As an SEN school the majority of our year 7 pupils arrive at our school working below national expectations for their age. As a school we have small classes and ensure that all pupils in year 7 have access to quality teaching. We use the year 7 catch up funding to allow a TA to support in one English lesson per week in each of the KS3 classes, which allows 1-1 work with a TA targeting reading or to allow small group work with a teacher as quality teaching time to develop literacy. Specific interventions are put in place to further support pupils working below age related expectations.

Review

All year 7 pupils achieved expected targets for literacy and numeracy, however due to SEN all pupils are still working below age related expectations.
