Introduction

Catch Up Funding was introduced in 2014 to enable schools to target extra resources towards students who arrive in Year 7 below the expected standards in literacy and/or numeracy. Previously, this meant students arriving in school below a Level 4 in both areas. Since 2015, this means students arriving below the newly defined ‘expected standards’.

Catch Up Funding is spent on interventions and extra teaching and resources which seek to boost the performance of these students who have arrived with us in Year 7 with levels of literacy and/or numeracy that mean many of them will have mild to extreme challenges in accessing the secondary curriculum. Our approach is to concentrate on extra literacy support and interventions as literacy challenges really impede young people’s access to learning more than almost any other factor. We recognise that numeracy is also a challenge for many of our students, who on average arrive with us with lower levels of numeracy than literacy, and we are investing in several new numeracy interventions and approached to help students catch up.

 

Students To Catch Up

For 2016/17 in our current Year 7 cohort of 181 students:

  • 72 achieved below the expected standard in Reading;
  • 65 achieved below the expected standard in GPVS (Grammar, Punctuation, Vocabulary and Spelling);
  • 79 achieved below the expected standards in Maths;
  • 56 achieved below the expected standards in Reading and GPVS;
  • 47 achieved below the expected standards in all three areas.
