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 split of students was therefore:
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.
