CATCH UP 7 AT THE WESTON ROAD ACADEMY 

Review

Catch Up 7 (The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium) gives the academy additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading and/or mathematics at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). The academy received £15,436 of year 7 catch up funding for the 2018-19 academic year.

Interventions in 2018/19 included:

  • Corrective Reading
  • Small group numeracy tuition
  • English Hub with specialist TA support

 

Impact in English (22 pupils)

The 23 pupils who joined the academy without reaching the expected standard in reading achieved an average English progress score of 0.58 in the summer of 2019. This means that, on average, these pupils performed over half a grade above national expectation of pupils with a similar prior attainment.

Impact in Mathematics (26 pupils)

The 19 pupils who joined the academy without reaching the expected standard in numeracy achieved an average Mathematics progress score of -0.11 in the summer of 2019. This means that, on average, these pupils performed roughly in line with the national expectation of pupils with a similar prior attainment.
