Year 7 Catch up Funding

Each year we receive funding to support students who did not meet Age Related Expectations in the Year 6 SATs. The table below shows how we used this funding to support our pupils and the impact it had.

Year 7 Catch-up Funding 2016 – 2017

Objective Activities Project Team Resources & Costs
To use the allocated fund to target students so that the majority make accelerated progress in Year 7 to reach age related expectations by the end of the year.
  • Allocate staffing to provide small group teaching on a daily basis for target pupils by:

         Creating support group in year 7 with small pupils numbers, esp. maths.

         Allocate TA support to this group to accelerate progress

  • Monitor progress rigorously by:

         baseline in GL assessment

         half termly pupil progress meetings

         meetings with adult leading interventions

         end of year GL assessment

  • Ensure pupils are high profile by:

         Identifying them on pupil progress groups

         Identifying them as a group in target tracker

         Making pupils a focus on pupil progress meetings with staff

  • Focus interventions on progress of target pupils by:

         Teacher led interventions in Reading and Maths

         Ensure target pupils are part of groups along with pupil premium

         Review quality and effectiveness of interventions – pupil progress meetings

Outcomes for pupils are good at the end of Year 7 and represent good progress compared to the cohort’s KS2 SAT results. It demonstrates the effectiveness of the support in Year 7 and the use of Y7 Catch-up Funding.

The good progress made by Year 7 students meant a successful transition to High School.
