Year 7 Catch-up Premium Grant Report: 2016-17
The Department for Education has allocated £500 per pupil for the number of year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least a level 4 in reading and/or mathematics at Key Stage 2. This is based on Key Stage 2 data and the autumn school census.
- In 2014-15 the allocation of funds for this purpose to Brampton Manor Academy was £25,000 (50 students)
- In 2015-16 the allocation of funds for this purpose to Brampton Manor Academy was £21,500 (43 students)
- In 2016-17 the allocation of funds for this purpose to Brampton Manor Academy was £22,828
In 2016-17 these monies are being used to fund:
- A reading intervention programme: Lexia.
- Small group intensive support on reading for meaning; and writing.
- Reduced class sizes in English and Maths to address the needs of these students.
- LSA support and intervention with literacy and numeracy throughout the curriculum.
- The purchase of texts and resources for small, specifically focused classes in English and Mathematics.
- Specialist training of teachers to teach literacy and numeracy to those students below level 4 across the curriculum.
- Additional teaching in Mathematics to targeted students.
In 2015/16 the impact of the intervention can also be directly seen through levels of progress made. The impact of the English and literacy intervention shows that 19 of the 43 students who entered the school below level 4 making expected progress in line with similar students nationally, 24 of the 43 students continue to benefit from the above listed provisions.
