Year 7 Catch up Funding

Year 7 Catch up Funding

St Anne’s receives £12,990 extra funding for pupils who are below level 4 in English or Maths (this amount will be confirmed in March 2018).  We have invested in extra staffing in order to support the progress of our pupils during 2016-17. This remains the case for 2017-18.

Our lowest ability groups were split into two smaller groups in English and mathematics.

 

English: The pupils achieving lowest at Key Stage 2 were identified to be placed in smaller class for English to increase the level of teacher pupil interaction and therefore support in lessons. This allowed the class teacher to differentiate the curriculum appropriately to best support these pupils in making progress. Of all of the pupils identified as achieving lowest at Key Stage 2 for English, by the end of year 8, 13.7% were working towards expected levels which was comparable with the rest of the cohort, 66.7% were working at expected levels in comparison with 75.3% of the rest of the cohort and 19.6% were exceeding expected levels of progress in comparison with 11% of the rest of the year group cohort.

 

Maths: The pupils achieving lowest at Key Stage 2 were identified to be placed in smaller class for Maths to increase the level of teacher pupil interaction and therefore support in lessons. This allowed the class teacher to differentiate the curriculum appropriately to best support these pupils in making progress and also allowed these pupils to be provided with additional hours of maths teaching in place of learning French throughout Key Stage 3. Of all of the pupils identified as achieving lowest at Key Stage 2 for Maths, by the end of year 8, 40.8% were working towards expected levels which was comparable with the rest of the cohort at 41.9%, 57.1% were working at expected levels in comparison with 37.8% of the rest of the cohort and 2% were exceeding expected levels of progress in comparison with 20.3% of the rest of the year group cohort. This maths intervention is continuing in Year 8.
