Catch-up Premium Funding

Catch-Up Premium: students below the expected scaled scores in English and Maths

 

Year 7 2016-2017

We have monitored the progress of students across Year 7 who ended Key Stage 2 with scaled scores in either maths or reading of less than 100. We have used Year 7 Catch-up Premium Funding to support those students within this group who had the lowest Reading and Maths scores, and have focused particularly on those who were low in both.

At Farlingaye, Key Stage 3 assessment is carried out through a variety of activities and judged against 'Depth of Understanding Criteria'. Periodically students are given a grade from A to E based common criteria with subject specific guidelines as in our assessment policy. A grade C is based on the minimum level of understanding we would expect from all students. Grades A and B are awarded to those students who are achieving above these expectations.

 

Maths

 Of the 79 students who started with a Maths scaled score below 100:

  • 57 were working at or above expected levels with 17 of these above. Showing that they made good or better progress across the year.
  • 3 students have been given a grade E for Maths which implies they have been able to show only minimal understanding. These students all had scaled scores of less than 90.
  • 23 students were given a grade D - this implies that their understanding remains below the norm for the year group but they have made progress in their learning across Year 7.

 

English

 Of the 83 students who started with an English scaled score below 100:

  • 55 were working at or above expected levels with 15 of these above. Showing that they made good or better progress across the year.
  • 2 students have been given a grade E for English which implies they have been able to show only minimal understanding. These students had reading scaled scores of 87 and 92.
  • 25 students were given a grade D - this implies that their understanding remains below the norm for the year group but they have made progress in their learning across Year 7.

 

27 of the 54 students who came to us with below expected scores in both Reading and Maths have shown understanding at, or above the expected level for the year group in both subjects - making very good progress over the year.
