Y7 Catch Up Fund

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is It?

Students who leave Primary School with a Level 3 or below in Reading and/or Mathematics attract £500 each into the School Budget to help them 'catch up' to a Level 4.

What Happens To It?

The School receives the funding in March of the current academic year and uses it to support the following:

  • Literacy Boost Sessions
  • Numeracy Boost Sessions
  • Small group work in English and Maths
  • Daily Reading Club for Year 7 and 8 in the Lower School Library
  • Purchase of specialist resources to support learning

My Child Is Eligible, How Do I Know They Have Access To The Support?

If your child is attending a Boost session, you will be informed by letter at the start of their attendance.

Reading Club – attendance is not compulsory, but many students attend on a daily basis.

Homework Club – run 2-3 lunch times a week for support with any type of homework including My Maths – Lower School Library.

Progress is assessed by SEN staff using a standardised Reading Assessment or through monitoring of assessment data from English and Maths.

In 2014-2015, all 13 students made progress and either achieved their end of year target or a Level 4 in Reading and/or Maths as a result of the work they did with the English and Maths Departments and Learning Support Centre.

How Much Does The School Get?

2013-2014: 12 students were eligible = £6000

2014-2015: 13 students were eligible = £6500

2015-2016: 11 students were eligible = £5500
