Kingsbury High School Catch-up Premium Report 2017-18

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support Year 7 students who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

In the academic year, 2017-18, we received a total of £27,500 for our Catch-up Premium students.  We used these funds towards creating smaller English and maths classes (of around 10-14 students) for those who have not achieved the expected standard in these subjects.  This allows these students to receive more dedicated time with their teachers to address the difficulties they have in these subjects and to get them caught up with their peers.

In English, at the start of Year 7, there were 86 students who had not reached the expected standard in English. By the end of Year 7, 52% were above the expected standard, and 23% were at the expected standard.  At the start of Year 7, there were 86 students who had not reached the expected standard in English. By the end of Year 7, 52% were above the expected standard, and 23% were at the expected standard.

In Maths, since the start of Year 7 through these classes, 65% of students made at least one-sub level of progress, 28% made at least two sub levels of progress and 7% of students made at least one whole grade of progress.
