Catch-up Premium

The government provides £500 per pupil for any Year 7 student who has not achieved at least a Level 4 in English and maths.  This is then used to provide additional support help students catch up and achieve accelerated progress in Year 7.  For 2015-16 the Academy received £18,500.  These funds were directed to provide intervention delivered by English and maths Teaching Assistants who support students one day a week with literacy and numeracy skills.  Sound Training for Reading intervention was delivered to support with reading, spelling and comprehension along with Accelerated Reader. Resources to support numeracy and arithmetic skills were also funded through this grant to students in addition to the taught curriculum.
