Year 7 Literacy & Numeracy Catch-up Premium
This funding is provided to all schools who have students with low attainment in literacy and numeracy arriving in Year 7.
Low attainment is defined as attainment below age-related expectations.
The purpose of this funding is to enable schools to deliver additional support, providing a boost to these students’ progress.
In February 2018, Clare Mount received £18,743 extra funding for this.
We have studied the research carefully in regard to intervention strategies that have evidence of success. We therefore, use this funding:
To provide an additional member of staff when Year 7 English and Maths lessons are being taught. This enables intensive small group work or 1:1 withdrawal when appropriate
To access additional ICT resources which enhance lessons, encourage homework and include assessments to advise focussed teaching
To support a greatly enhanced transition to reduce the impact of this change on our new students and enable them to settle into Clare Mount more effectively
