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.

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