Samuel Pepys School
Report on the use of Year 7 Catch Up Funding 2016-17 (Updated September 2017)
|Overview of Year 7 Catch Up
|The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). All state funded schools with year 7 pupils will receive this funding. The funding was received via the local authority in March 2017 for the academic year 2016-2017.|
|How are we accountable?||Since September 2013 Ofsted inspections report on Year 7 Catch Up funding and on how schools spend their additional funding.
We aim to:
Samuel Pepys School is an all-age school, with pupils from age 3 to 19. Our data gives us confidence that our year 7 pupils do not experience a dip in their expected progress when they transition from year 6 to year 7. Pupils are often supported by familiar staff and have transition visits. KS2 and KS3 are situated on the same school site. For this reason we use the Year 7 Catch up Funding to focus upon professional learning and development to ensure that all our staff are supported in working at the highest quality and that the resources available to our pupils for Literacy and Numeracy are of a high standard.
