Year 7 Catch Up Fund

Literacy catch up.

Catch up funding is used to reduce the size of English classes, create additional ‘literacy’ lessons each week for Year 7 and Year 8, buy in additional Speech and Language Therapy sessions and provide additional literacy sessions with a specialist HLTA. Lucid testing and GL assessments are in place to ensure that students receiving support make progress. We provide specialist literacy support for girls who arrive with a reading age below 7yrs and/or KS2 below 4. We have targeted reading intervention for any student who has a reading age below 7 and will be targeting a small group through the introduction of The Hackney Trust literacy programme. 

We have a dedicated English specialist who provides mentoring and subject specialist intervention for all girls who arrive in the Academy with Reading, Writing and Speaking score of below 4.

Numeracy catch up.

For all girls, there is dedicated individual tutorial time and for students who are finding Math's difficult there is dedicated intervention and mentoring. Our strongest Math's teachers, teach the lower sets to ensure that they achieve the best possible support.

There is a numeracy section in the students’ planners, which the students have out in all lessons to help them in all their subjects. The introduction of the online resource Hegarty maths, means that students are able to access a targeted online learning platform outside of lessons. During Math’s lessons we ensure our strongest teachers are with the students who need more support with basic numeracy. We have employed a dedicated Math's HLTA’s who provide support in and out of lessons to ensure that all girls who arrive with a KS 2 level below 4 make at least expected progress. Students who require additional numeracy support receive this via discreet maths lessons built into their personalised curriculum.

This year we are expecting to receive approximately £7,000 in catch up funding.

Due to Covid 19 and schools closing on March 20th, impact of Y7 catch up spend 2019-20 will be updated in January 2021.
