Catch Up Literacy
The initial testing took place in Autumn term 1 and the sessions started in Autumn 2. Each pupil had two 15 minute sessions each week (pupils were given a time slot from 8:30am to 9:15am).
The sessions focus on phonics and reading exercises as well as building confidence through one to one sessions. Common misconceptions are addresses and reading strategies are discussed to build confidence. There is also a focus on the understanding of new words, spellings and texts.
14 pupils took part and continued across the year.
93% of pupils who took part in the programme improved their reading age.
57% of pupils improved their reading age by 1 year or more.
21% of pupils improved their reading age by 2 years.
TAs are going to use the sessions to test grammar and reading knowledge of language and structure.
Lexia
Pupils access the phonics programme for 50 minutes every week. They also have access to this at home and are provided with the information to help them to access.
Pupils work their way through the levels and are monitored on time and units completed each week.
All pupils progressed through the different levels showing progress with a number of phonics units. Try to use Lexia with a larger number of pupils and introduce a unit monitoring system in room 34 so pupils can compare their progress across units and levels.

Catch Up Numeracy
All pupils completed baseline testing at the start of Autumn term 1 and a target group was identified. Pupils were given a 20 minute time slot in which they received 1-1 targeted support.
The numeracy sessions were focussed on the pupils' weakness identified from their KS2 paper and their baseline test.
All pupils showed progress in their specified areas.� The areas were focussed on numeracy skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.� Pupils completed questions with the TA at the end of their sessions to assess impact. This year we have introduced Mathletics and Numeracy Ninjas.� These are already showing impact across KS3 as we strive to improve pupils' basic numeracy skills.� We will complete more in depth analysis at the end of 2017/18 school year to assess impact.

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). These are pupils who achieved a scaled score of less than 100.


2016-2017

For the academic year 2016-17 we intend to build upon existing practice and will provide:

  • Support for department to use teaching assistants to perform one-to-one intervention with pupils
  • In class support for the teaching of groups with pupils below expected standard
  • Resources to support intervention programmes
  • Software to support one-to-one and small group work

2014-2015

The amount received in the financial year 2014-15 was �13,500. This was spent on the following areas to have the highest impact:

  • A proportion of the salary for a specialist Ks2/3 trained teacher to teach literacy and numeracy pupils with a key stage 2 English and/or maths score of 3 or below.

English

  • Reading books for Catch Up Literacy Intervention. (Catch Up Literacy is a structured one-to-one intervention for learners who find reading difficult.)
  • A proportion of the salary for the Teaching Assistants who run this intervention.

The results were positive:

  • An average of 18 months was gained in pupil reading ages over a 4 month period.
  • An average ratio gain based on test-test results showed 4.73
  • An average ratio gain based on intervention progress 3.17.

2013-14

For the academic year 2013-14 the catch up Premium was 13,500.00. This money was used to supplement the salary of a specialist teacher trained in Ks2/3. The teacher taught level 3 and below pupils literacy and numeracy skills. Pupils were timetabled with additional maths and English lessons to attend this class.

The results were positive and the teacher was kept on for the next academic year.

  • In English 70% of pupils made good progress across the year.
  • 30% of pupils made satisfactory progress across the year.
  • (Results based on progress made from baseline testing upon entry)
  • In Maths 50% made expected or above expected progress across the year.
