Year 7 Catch Up Premium 2014-2015

What is Catch-Up Premium?

 

Year 7 Catch-Up Premium is a type of funding additional to the main school funding.  It is received from the government and is allocated to students who failed to achieve at least a National Curriculum Level 4 at the end of Key Stage 2 in either Mathematics or English reading.

Schools are free to spend the Catch-Up Premium as they see fit within specific parameters.

Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy received £2 000 for the year 2014-2015

Use of the Catch Up Premium

 

The Year 7 Catch-Up Premium at Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy was used to pay for a range of student support activities and interventions. In the year 2014-2015 these included extra numeracy and literacy provision in the way of extra classes delivered by staff to small groups of students (approximately 8 per class).

We also delivered phonics lessons to small groups of students and this delivery was done by a qualified specialist in this field.

Individual support interventions also took place including dyslexia programmes.

Specialist resources were purchased for the students. These included items such as handwriting support booklets and coloured reading rulers.
