Catch up premium

The Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium 2019/2020.

Catch up funding principles

The Government allocates additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who do not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of Key Stage 2. The principle aim of this funding is to support those students to get them back on track and enable them to achieve the secondary ready standard. Funding allocated to Catch-Up £15,000; projected costings for 2019/20 £14,400.

2019 year 7 intake

Frederick Gent School have 162 students in Year 7. Students who met the criteria for the Year 7 catch-up premium are as follows:

Reading 33 20% of cohort
Maths 26 16% of cohort
Crossover students, those who are NSR in both Reading and Maths 13 8% of cohort

IDL Literacy and Numeracy Programme

Identified students will follow IDL Intervention: a speaking-computer based multi-sensory system which supports learners with dyslexia and other learning difficulties to increase their reading and spelling ages. The design of the short, finely graduated exercises ensure over-learning and frequent positive feedback.  Particular letter/sound correspondence is secured before moving on.

IDL Literacy effectively improves reading and spelling amongst pupils with various literacy problems, removes visual stress by the use of colour, and is designed to be particularly effective with those who have poor phonological skills.  The effectiveness is due to the integration of reading and writing, the integration of visual and auditory cues to teach letter/sound and blend/sound correspondence, a continuum of exercises that start with recognising the alphabet, and the requirement to re-read typed sentences.

Costing £1000.

Progress Tests for English and Maths.

The Progress Test Series (PT Series) assesses pupils’ true comprehension of the core curriculum subjects, helping us to identify which pupils need extra support and which will rise to more challenging targets. Using the insights from PT Series reports, we can be confident that the targets and interventions we set are matched to each child’s attainment.

The PT series provides a reliable, consistent attainment measure against the backdrop of recent changes to national assessment and accountability. Question level analysis highlights any gaps in knowledge and understanding, helping us to personalise learning.

TA Staffing – Targeted intervention in English and Maths.

2 TAs will be paid to run 4 intervention groups afterschool.

£2500

All Year 7 students enter mainstream provision as they enter the school. This is then followed by a review and students will then take part in intervention throughout the year to close gaps. Small group literacy and numeracy interventions based on strategies identified in the EEF toolkit as impactful form the basis of the delivered programme.

Great confidence and fluency in Literacy and Numeracy was seen in attainment and progress for identified pupils.

Students are increasing in confidence with the basic skills.  They are developing understanding of number bonds to 10.  

Project based curriculum 

£4800

The establishment of a specific class and curriculum, which focuses on the needs of the lowest performing students on entry who need a specialised curriculum to succeed.

The Project intervention programme will continue to run with further focus on developing the curriculum content to provide a supportive and progressive curriculum for those students who are significantly below the standardised score of 100 at the end of KS2.

Provision of the dedicated ‘Project’ classes allow for a higher teacher to student ratio to further support progress. The project class will use out of class experiences to enhance learning alongside workshops on the Art of Brilliance to raise aspirations and engagement in order to improve progress.

The ‘Brilliant Learners’ workshops are designed to work on the ‘whole person’ and are aimed at extending learning beyond the classroom. Individual workshops feed the principles of: positivity, confidence, flourishing, resilience, optimism, community spirit, kindness, aspiration and strength. The workshops inspire and invigorate learners to develop essential skills for success.

The aim is to improve students’ approaches to learning through developing their mindset, which will have a positive impact on their desire to learn, create learners that are more resilient and in turn improve progress.

An after school event to improve links with home and school for those students who meet the Catch-Up criteria. The event promoted the Catch-Up interventions with the aim of improving the links between home and school to support student progress.

Delivered to parents and students through academic year 2019/20.
