Year 7 Catch up Premium 2018/19 – Impact

destination-data

The literacy and numeracy catch up premium provides additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2.

Wilmington Academy received £17,546.00 in 2018-2019 to support students who started the Academy with a score below 100 (secondary ready) in English (reading) and/or maths.  We put a range of interventions in place such as Accelerated Reader and Catch Up Numeracy to support these students.  We also used the extra funding to create smaller class sizes for our bottom sets, so that these students could have more teacher time.  The impact of these interventions is shown below.

English

  • 31% of cohort below expected level in English on entry based on key stage 2 tests.
  • 78% of these students became secure or better by the end of year 7.

Maths

  • 26% of cohort below expected level in maths on entry based on key stage 2 tests.
  • 67% of these students became secure or better by the end of year 7.

Catch Up Literacy Intervention Impact

Accelerated Reader is embedded into the curriculum featuring one bespoke session per week. However, reading opportunities are made via the library regularly.

Literacy

  • Average reading age September 2018 10 years 5 months.
  • 51% of students improved their reading age by 6 months or more.
  • 73% of students improved their reading age by 12 months or more (+30% gain from 2017/18).
