Catch Up Premium
Catch Up Premium Overview
Christ’s School received the following Catch Up Premium Grants in the last two years:
2014-15 : £8,000
2016-17 Catch Up Premium Impact
Numeracy Intervention: 11 Year 7 students met with a specialist Maths teacher once per week during Personal Development time. This additional support started at the end of September 2016 and it was ongoing throughout the year.
36% made very good progress and 45% made good progress. Two students had very low attendance to the intervention sessions.
Literacy Intervention: Between September 2016 and June 2017 students who entered Year 7 with Reading scores from their Key Stage 2 Assessments of below the National Standard received weekly mentoring from trained Year 10 students. The mentoring sessions took the form of paired reading between the Year 7 and Year 10 students; staff were also in attendance during each session.
Of the 23 students who took part in the paired reading, 20% made excellent progress; 20% made good progress and 10 made no progress. Those that made no progress had poor attendance rates at the intervention sessions.
Year 7 Catch-Up Premium Plan 2017-18
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 is put towards the cost of our English and Maths intervention lessons, where students receive intensive and targeted specialist subject support in small groups.
In addition, the school runs a weekly paired reading programme where trained Year 10 mentors read with the Year 7 “Catch Up” students on a weekly basis.
In Year 7, 9 students have been identified as needing additional Maths intervention; 4 have been identified for English intervention and a further 5 needing both English and Maths intervention as part of the catch up programme.
