The Department for Education has allocated a small sum of money (£3635 expected for 2017-18) to support those students in Year 7 who did not achieve the expected levels in reading, writing and / or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.
These funds are used to support a range of interventions including:
- reading intervention programmes e.g. Read Write Inc.
- handwriting intervention
- additional intervention support for literacy and numeracy throughout the curriculum
- small group intervention
- reading mentors
- homework club
- greater personalisation, monitoring and emotional support for key individuals
- additional in lesson support and interventions
In 2017/18, we will continue to be use the ‘catch up’ grant as described above, with increasing levels of personalisation to individual intervention programmes. In 2017-18 the catch up grant is being used to support:
- 18 children in reading
- 28 children in writing
- 12 children in maths
