Impact of Catch up Spending

2016 Impact of ‘Catch up’ Spending

 

What effect has the expenditure had on the attainment of pupils at the school for whom it was allocated’

The number of students we supported was higher than the original projection as we took into consideration all students who entered Year 7 with an English Core Assessment of below Level 4.

The split of students was therefore:

  • 7 Students below Level 4 in Mathematics and English
  • 22 students below Level 4 in English
  • 23 students below Level 4 in Mathematics
  • Total=40 students

 

English – 73% of  students less than Level 4 made 1 or more LOP – an increase of 3% on 2015 and 19% over 2014

Maths – 87% of students less than Level 4 made 1 or more LOP – an increase of 28% on 2014 and 31% over 2014

English & Maths – 7 students less than Level 4 in both – 5 making 1 or more LOP in both =71%; an increase of 21% on 2014 and 41% over 2014

86% of students less than Level 4 in English increased their reading age.

The average increase in reading age for students who came in  at less than Level 4 with a Reading Age of below 10 years was 1 year and 3 months.

How we assessed the effect on attainment:

  • Assessments in English and Maths
  • Standardised Reading Age tests

 

How we plan to spend the current academic year’s allocation

 

ACTION
Nurture group
Specialist Dyslexia support
Specialist Dyscalculia support
Rapid Readers
My Lexia

 

It is intended that alongside some interventions from last year, there will be a greater focus on:

  • More targeted use of HLTAs to support nurture and ‘catch-up’ students in mainstream lessons
  • Paired reading and guided reading through DEAR time
  • Summer School for incoming Year 6 students in target group
  • Masterclasses targeting Year 5 and 6 students in target group
  • The Nurture group will enhance learning in mainstream English and Maths lessons.
  • Additional costs for Nurture group staffing and resources are met within the Pupil Premium budget for those children who qualify for Pupil Premium Grant
