Year 7 Catch-Up Premium – Review of 2019-2020

For the academic year of 2019-2020 (funding of £10,586) alongside the existing interventions, we planned to:

  • Increase opportunities for enrichment trips

⇒ For the first time, all students attended Year 7 camp either as a day guest or residential

  • Increase competition in literacy and numeracy based challenges across the curriculum
  • Offered academic and wellbeing support through Peer Mentoring, Homework and Breakfast club

⇒ All support strategies were deployed as part of Year 7 transition process

  • Increase enriching activities with feeder primary schools

⇒ Plans were unable to be implemented due to Covid-19 restrictions

  • Target support for pupil premium students with SEND

⇒ Student licences and enrolment in Spellzone and Lexia literacy based interventions

  • Increase opportunities for parent consultation

⇒ Introduction of coffee mornings, increasing opportunities for parents/carers to have face to face engagement with school staff
