Philips High School

Year 7 Catch up Premium 2019-20

Overview
The Year 7 catch-Up premium has been offered by the Government as a commitment to provide additional funding to schools. This is aimed at each year 7 pupil who did not meet the expected standard in reading or mathematics at the end of KS2. At Philips High School we focus our out of class intervention on pupils who do not have a scale score of at least 96 in the Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests in reading and/or mathematics. The purpose of this funding is to enable Philips High School to deliver additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support in small groups, for those pupils that most need it.

Overview Year 7 Catch-Up Premium 2019-20

We identified 44 pupils eligible for the catch-up premium in Literacy and 30 pupils in Numeracy for the academic year 2019-20.

The projected amount of funding for 2019-20 was £15,672.

We spent this in a variety of ways, including:

  • Small group and one to one tuition – provided by internal HLTAs.
  • Resources to support learning.
  • Teachers offering extra intervention and support in literacy and numeracy for Year 7 catch-up group.
  • In-class support for literacy and numeracy will take place, and extra TA time allocation to support students in English and Mathematics lessons.
  • Reading Intervention.

Impact of Spending 2018-19

We have measured the impact of progress at the end of the academic year.

At the end of the year:

87.5% of the 32 students below 100 SS in their KS2 English are now working at the expected standard in English.

72% of the 11 students below 95 SS in their KS2 English are now working at the expected standard in English.

31% of the 32 students below 100 SS in their KS2 Maths are now working at the expected standard in Maths.

18% of the 11 students below 96 SS in their Maths are now working at the expected standard in Maths.

Summary

Of the 11 pupils eligible for catch up premium in Literacy, 3 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard by the end of year 7 will continue to receive extra support in year 8.

Of the 11 pupils eligible for catch up premium in Numeracy, 9 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard by the end of year 7 will continue to receive extra support in year 8.

Year 7 Catch up Premium 2020-21

Overview

The Year 7 catch-Up premium has been offered by the Government as a commitment to provide additional funding to schools. This is aimed at each year 7 pupil who did not meet the expected standard in reading or mathematics at the end of KS2. At Philips High School we focus our out of class intervention on pupils who do not have a scale score of at least 96 in the Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests in reading and/or mathematics. The current Year 7 at Philips did not sit Year 6 SATs due to Covid-19. We have therefore used internal baseline tests and Year 6 teacher’s assessments to identify pupils who require additional support. The purpose of this funding is to enable Philips High School to deliver additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support in small groups, for those pupils that most need it.

The amount of funding for 2020-21 was £0 as allocation for Yr 7 Catch Up funding no longer exists as a Grant and is not referenced within the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG). We will however continue to identify pupils who are below the National standard for Maths and English.
