Year 7 Catch Up Premium
Impact of the catch up funding 2017-18
The literacy and numeracy catch up funding provides schools with an additional £500 for each pupil who did not achieve the expected standard 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 and Sports College received an additional £16,526 for the academic year 2017-18. This money was allocated to provide individual and small group intervention as well as investment in an Accelerated Reader Programme and an Accelerated Maths Programme.
Progress of eligible Year 7 students 2017-18 (now current Year 8)
73 students attracted funding due to their KS2 score in reading, 53 due to their KS2 score in mathematics and of those 126 students, 89 had not reached the expected standard in both reading and mathematics.
Following focussed intervention, as shown in the table below, 92% of the students eligible for funding due to reading scores are now making at least expected progress and 91% of those eligible for funding due to scores in mathematics are now making at least expected progress.
Progress for the current Year 7 will be updated following the first wave of intervention this term.
