Year 7 Catch Up Fund

Literacy catch up

Catch up funding is used to reduce the size of English classes, create an 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 are 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 online reading programme LEXIA. 

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. 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.

Last year we received £5,616 in catch up funding and we expect a similar figure this year.
