Year 7 Numeracy & Literacy Funding

The Coleshill School Year 7 Catch-Up Funding 2019/20

Total catch up budget:

£6,125

StrategyDescriptionImpact
Early and accurate testing to inform core intervention.   Reading tests logistics were conducted during induction day in advance of the new intake to use data from July 2017 and KS2 data from September 2017 to identify target groups for intervention. Interim assessments were used to measure progress.  Six students were removed from Maths and English lessons to follow the curriculum in a nurture group whereby there was opportunity for over-teaching and pre-teaching to consolidate learning.

 

Students were integrated back into mainstream lessons in the summer term following assessment. 

NGRT and NGST will provide online instant data for students with low reading ages, who are below standardised expectations and then compare them with students nationally.

Plan, co-ordinate and evaluate the intervention for Y7, Y8 and Y9. Intervention will support students across KS3 and into KS4; those with low reading ages will be identified on seating plans.
