Catch Up Pupil Premium – Review 2015-16
In the academic year 2015-16, 20 the funding given to pupils eligible for the Catch Up premium was spent in a number of ways:
- A Literacy Assistant
- Access to the Accelerated Reader Programme.
- Resources to support learning
- In class support for literacy and numeracy from TA allocation
- Guided Reading intervention (from Literacy Assistant allocation)
- Visit from children’s book author to help with extended writing,
All pupils benefitted from the programme:
100% of the pupils made at least two sub levels of progress in English
100% are estimated to make at least 4 sub levels of progress by end of KS3.
100% of the pupils made at least two sub levels of progress in Mathematics
90% are estimated to make at least 4 sub levels of progress by end of KS3.
There was a range of qualitative progress observed by the Literacy Assistant and the HLTA. The pupils’ wellbeing was nurtured and their confidence in social, literacy and numeracy skills grew. Where the pupils made rapid progress, they were removed from the programme so they could fully access all subjects of the curriculum alongside their peers.
