Year 7 Catch Up Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch up funding provides schools with an additional £500 for each pupil who did not achieve at least level 4 in English reading and / or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. It is provided to all state funded schools with a Year 7 cohort.

Northfield School received an additional £19,000 for the academic year 2015-16. This money has been allocated to provide individual and small group intervention as well as investment in an Accelerated Reader Programme and an Accelerated Maths Programme.

2 sub-levels progress would be expected progress for an academic year at KS3

Catch-Up group all chosen at entry due to < L4 English compared to the Non Catch-Up all >= L4

Catch-Up group immediately started to close the L4+ gap at AP1 and have now closed to within 29% from a starting point of 100%.

All Catch-Up students started with a KS2 level of < 4, so to make it to a L5 by AP6 means that they must have made at least 4 sub-levels of progress when 3 sub-levels would constitute outstanding.
