Year 7 Catch Up Premium

Catch-Up Premium Statement

In 2018-2019 the Academy received £19,607 Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium.

Year 7 funding is spent on specific intervention programmes to support students’ development in literacy and numeracy.

For literacy, funding has been spent on STAR reading tests to support development of skills together with support from a dedicated literacy co-ordinator. Students follow a range of programmes (Daily Reading Time; interventions led by Learning Support Assistants; Accelerated Reader interventions; Reciprocal Reading, for which staff and sixth form students have been trained). A member of staff has been specifically recruited to support the development of students’ literacy in the Academy.

For numeracy, students are supported by various software packages that enable students to practise and develop their numeracy skills in lessons and outside of school. These are led by the mathematics team in the Academy.
