Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium - The Dormston School

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium

Funding For 2017-2018 Academic Year

Level of Funding

The allocation methodology has changed and schools now receive the same amount of year 7 catch-up premium that they got the previous year, adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort, based on the October school census.

Use of funding

The funding will be used to support a range of strategies.

  • A reading and spelling group for a small number of pupils following a phonics-based reading scheme created for older readers who are still struggling to decode successfully and fluently. The introduction of a reading lesson for all pupils in Year 7.
  • A mentoring programme for a number of pupils involving older pupils and supervised by staff.
  • Decreased class sizes for both English and Maths in Year 8 and 9 and bespoke intensive interventions for Year 7.
  • Subsidised trips and visits which are targeted to inspire and encourage reluctant readers.
  • Additional resources that have been developed for parents/ carers to support their child at home.
