Catch up premium

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium 2018-2019

 

The literacy and numeracy catch up premium provides schools with £500 extra funding for each student who has not reached the required level in English and/or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2.i.e scoring below 100.

 

Trentham Academy will receive £8721 est. for the year 2018-19, based on the previous year’s allocation. Final amounts will be confirmed in due course.

 

The academy has responsibility for identifying areas in which the funding will maximise the progress of these students.

 

The Catch Up Premium grant is clearly identifiable within the school budget and the impact of interventions is monitored through department development plans. The school is accountable for how it has used the additional funding to support the achievement of eligible pupils and the Headteacher reports to the governing body and parents on how effective the interventions have been in achieving its aims.

 

Objective:

The objective at Trentham Academy is to ensure that these identified students make the rapid and sustained progress necessary to achieve ‘a level of competency that will enable them to access the secondary curriculum’ and bridge the gap to their peers.

We aim to accelerate the progress of these students by ensuring that their individual needs are met.

Overview of strategies:

 

Strategies to meet the needs of pupils eligible for Catch Up Premium at the school are informed by academic research (principally from the findings of Sutton Trust research).

 

The school assesses the individual needs of eligible pupils, and spends the funding allocation on targeted support through:

  • One to one and small group tuition in English and Mathematics
  • Additional afterschool Catch-up sessions across the curriculum, and specifically in English and Maths.
  • Access to a homework club and breakfast club to support a ‘targeted cohort’.
  • A specific and discrete scheme of work in English through Year 7 and Year 8.
  • High quality classroom provision for the teaching of reading and mathematics with CPD planned to support teachers.
  • Termly tracking and monitoring of ‘catch up cohort’ in Reading and Maths to review progress and impact of intervention. Pupil profiles created by the SENCO to support intervention.
