Context and funding

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium was introduced by the Government in January 2013 and is paid to schools to rapidly raise levels of achievement for year 7 students attained below a national curriculum level 4 in reading and/or maths, at the end of key stage 2.  Given the removal of nc levels, for 2016-17 the Dfe have said that funding will mirror that of 2015-16.

The premium is allocated to schools and it is for schools to decide how it is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual students in their care. This school uses the funding to support the needs of the identified students, by ensuring that it impacts on their progress in literacy and numeracy, where identified and further details regarding the specific usage is provided below.

  Our Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium funding

 Total funding in 2015/16 was £9,500 (19 students) and therefore funding in 2015/17 is also £9,500

 

Impact Statement 2016-17

For 2016/17, we invested in the highly regarded Reading Wise software and training.  This is an intensive programme of interactive literacy support delivered every morning for 20 minutes with the support of our HLTA (Literacy) and a TA for 14 consecutive weeks.  This programme was delivered to groups of 6 and all the identified students, whose Reading scores were lowest on arriving with us from primary school, benefited from the resource over the course of the year.  A Reading Age Test is conducted prior to joining the programme – and tested again at the end.  Reading Wise has evidence to suggest that students should improve their performance by at least two years.
