Year 7 Catch Up
The Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools to support all Year 7 learners who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or Maths at the end of key stage 2.
For both 2016-17 and 2017-18 the school received £10,000. At Cams Hill School we use this funding for:
- Individual interventions by the Learning Support Department, including Star Spell.
- Nurture groups for year 7 pupils run by the Learning Support Department, which seek to
integrate pupils more readily into a classroom environment and enable targeted literacy and
- Intervention in Maths lessons through teaching assistants and smaller class sizes for pupils who did not reach the expected standard at the end of key stage 2.
- Intervention in English lessons through teaching assistants and smaller class sizes for pupils who did not reach the expected standard at the end of key stage 2.
The impact of this funding is to give students the best possible opportunity to meet their targets in
English and Maths by the end of year 7, which most students achieve or exceed. Further interventions are put in place in years 8 and 9 for those who do not meet their targets at this stage.
