Our Year 7 Catch-up Premium Funding
The Catch-Up Premium gives schools additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who need extra support in literacy and numeracy.
The Catch up cohort includes 2 students who have an EHCP and 17 students with K SEND code. Students are in sets, which allow them to access all aspects of the English and Maths curriculum.
- 20.3% of students (54 students) in year 7 achieved a scaled score of 95 or less in their KS2 SATS English. From this group 33 students have a scaled score of less than 90.
- 10% of students (27 students) in year 7 achieved a scaled score of 95 or less in their KS2 SATS Mathematics. 13 students have a scaled score less than 90.
English and Mathematics
- 18 students (6.7% of the whole cohort) failed to achieve a scaled score of 95 in English and Maths.
Funding and proposed Allocation
In the year 2019-20, the Academy will receive £13,038 catch-up funding. The premium is allocated based on the proportion of students requiring support in each area of English, Reading and Maths.
|Based on students, funded in Maths, English and Numeracy.||Proportion %||Funding £|
Proportion of students scoring 95 or less for English (54 Students)
|Proportion of students scoring 95 or less for Maths (27 students)||33.3%||£4,346|
