Year 7 - Catch up funding

Year 7 Catch – Up Funding

2016 – 2017

The Department for Education (DfE) provided additional funding for all students in Year 7 from 2012 onwards, who achieved below their age related expectations at the end of KS2. This additional funding is to be used by schools/academies to provide literacy and numeracy catch-up support for Year 7 students. It is designed to help students catch up as quickly and as far as possible. In the case of our cohorts it is to be used to boost rates of progress as opposed to expectations for increasing attainment to age related in light of pupils’ specific learning needs.

Fitzwaryn School received £5,500 in 2016/2017.

The funding was used to provide 1:1 intervention support to improve progress, as well as resources for guided reading that are more age appropriate for our pupils. Extra resources in maths were purchased to enhance the interventions devised by teachers and implemented by class staff.

Data analysis at the end of the academic year shows the following progress towards meeting end of key stage 3 targets.

Year 7 2016 - 2017

Outstanding Progress towards meeting target (UQ or above)

Good progress towards meeting target (Median or above)

Satisfactory progress towards meeting target (LQ or above)









We expect to receive £6000 for 2017 – 2018

This funding will be spent on staff training in maths from Les Staves, text free story books to extend pupils’ story telling work and 1:1 targeted intervention support.
