Catch Up Premium

Catch Up Premium Overview

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides schools with an additional £500 for each Year 7 student who did not achieve at Expected National Standards in reading and/or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

At Christ’s School the additional funding was put towards the cost of our English and Maths intervention lessons, where students received intensive and targeted specialist subject support in small groups.

In addition, the school ran a weekly paired reading programme where trained Year 10 mentors read with the Year 7 “Catch Up” students on a weekly basis.

 

2018-19 Impact statement and 2019-20 Plan: £8,616

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides schools with an additional £500 for each Year 7 student who did not achieve at Expected National Standards in reading and/or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

At Christ’s School this additional funding is used towards the cost of our English and Maths intervention lessons, where students receive intensive and targeted specialist subject support in small groups. 

In September 2019, 10 Year 7 students have been identified as needing additional Maths and English intervention.

This intervention will start in September; those students will receive one additional lesson per week of Maths and/or English, delivered by a specialist teacher.

In addition, those who have not met the national standard “scaled score” for reading will follow the intensive “Bedrock” reading programme which will teach and build vocabulary explicitly whilst encouraging reading. This curriculum will teach, assess and allow for data driven interventions at a personal level.
