Our School

The Catch-up Premium is an additional payment to the school to support students who need extra help catching up when they join us from primary school. 

The school receives extra money for every student coming into Year 7 who has not achieved their expected level in English and/or maths.

In 2015/16 we received £16,000 and in 2016/17 we received £18,566. Our allocation for 17/18 has not been confirmed yet.

This is used to provide KS3 students with additional support in English and Maths, including:

  • Year 6 literacy and numeracy intervention
  • Achievement group (small intervention group) for core English, Maths and Science
  • Lexia – phonics intervention
  • Reading intervention programme
  • success@arithmetic
  • Accelerated Reader programme

Impact

All eligible students who started in September 2014 (26 students) have increased their English and Maths levels by at least one level, some by three. Reading ages have increased by at least 1 year 2 months and some by 3 years!
