Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium
We receive catch-up funding for our Year 7 pupils who didn’t reach the expected standard in Key Stage 2 tests.
We are aware of the question level analysis from our individual pupil’s performance in each question and element of the three Key Stage 2 tests: mathematics, reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling. Therefore, our plans to spend the catch-up funding are specific to overcoming these identified areas for development for each pupil.
The effectiveness of this strategy will be continually evaluated, and a report of the effectiveness of the previous year’s spending will be published here also.
At Castle Mead, 29% of our pupils do not meet the expected standard in Literacy and 19% did not meet the expected standard in Numeracy. Therefore our funding for this academic year is £92,892.
