Catch-Up Premium Funding at TRGA 2018-19

The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium is additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in Reading or Mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2.

2018-19 Funding: £26,310.

2017-18 Funding: £27,651.

2018-19 Catch-Up cohort strategy

102 students in Reading and 98 students in Mathematics arrived at TRGA with a score of 100 or below in KS2 tests equating to Level 4c or lower. There are 72 students below expected levels in both English and Mathematics. 100 students in Reading and 67 in Mathematics have or are receiving intervention currently

Reading

Strategy 1: Ruth Miskin ‘Fresh Start’
Fresh Start and Humanities through English
7C4, 7C5, 8C5 follow Ruth Miskin ‘Fresh Start’ programme.
Fresh Start is a daily phonics-based programme aimed at students in upper primary / early secondary. English teachers have been trained to deliver the programme.
In addition, these groups are taught Humanities by their English teacher to improve literacy skills and prioritise literacy outcomes.

Strategy 2: Literacy Planet
Students 80-90 (not following Ruth Miskin ‘Fresh Start’) on a rolling programme of reading and Literacy Planet during 30 mins of PD each week.

Strategy 3: Reading Groups
90- 100 students to follow reading programme in form time on Tuesday/Thursday/Friday
AST in English to focus on a specific form in turn, or if small numbers, two forms together
Students to follow whole group guided reading using smart skills books.

How we are measuring impact:
During the academic Year 2018-19, we measure the impact of the Catch-Up funding in English through

  • GCSE 9-1 Grades; Reading ages (STAR reading test);
  • Literacy Planet reports (intervention groups);
  • Single Word Reading Test (‘Fresh Start’ students only)

Progress is reported in the second and third term of the academic year.

Mathematics

Strategy: Catch Up Groups (After school sessions)
The plan is the same format as previous years for maths catch up with students with a scale score less than 99 being placed into intervention groups for Monday after school.  These will start on 1/10/18 and will run until Christmas where the changes will then be made.

There is a three-tier scheme of work to ensure high quality delivery to those who need this extra numeracy practice.   From 1st October, students are assigned a group depending on their KS2 scales score and in some cases baseline scores.  Students with similar scaled scores are grouped into sets.  These sets receive extra Maths sessions on Monday for 30 minutes.

Students with the lowest scaled scores are in the smallest groups.

How we are measuring impact:
During 2018-19, we measure the impact of the Catch-Up funding through:

  • Scaled scores and GCSE 9-1 Grades (GCSE Grades from APs and grade of completed work);
  • Minimum Expectations (Set by the trust for each year and ability);

Please find below the trust agreed minimum expectation table, for Maths, which is used to assess the progress of these students at each assessment point.

LPAs a 1 2 3 4

Progress is reported in the second and third term of the academic year.
