Level 4 Literacy and Numeracy catch-up

Level 4 catch–up premium funding

The school has been provided with funding annually to support students in year 7 who arrive with literacy and/or numeracy levels below a level 4 in their Key Stage 2 assessments.

The funding is £500 per student.

How 2015-16 funding was used:

  • Delivery of a transition Summer School
  • Additional in-class support
  • Small group and 1-1 support
  • Delivery of accelerated reading and numeracy schemes (Renaissance Reading and Toe by Toe).

How 2016-17 funding was used:

  • Use of a wide range of IT based literacy and numeracy solutions with Year 7 including LEXIA and Achieve 3000
  • Use of Renaissance Reading and Star Maths. Some students have been supported in a transition group meeting daily each day.
  • 1:1 work on Toe by Toe with a Teaching Assistant three times a week
  • Maths interventions in three registrations per week. Some students have used Power of Two with their TAs during maths lessons.
  • How 2017-18 funding is being used:
  • The money has been spent on LEXIA and Acheive 3000.  We have also bought into Twinkle Resources to help with differentiation and inclusive practices.  We run three sessions after school each week with targeted literacy interventions. We also use Star Maths, Power of 1 and Power of 2 in registration time to provide targeted support.
