Numeracy

For the 2018-19 academic year, the maths and SEND departments, in conjunction, ran a year 7 catch-up programme for selected year 7 pupils who entered the Academy with a below national average KS2 baseline score. The aim of this programme was to substantially improve the numeracy and basic number skills of these pupils so that they can access more difficult components from the KS3 Curriculum. This was delivered in Term 1 and 2 following the identification of this cohort of 47 pupils.

Literacy

The Year 7 Catch Up groups for 2018-19 has a total of 44 pupils not meeting age related expectations in tow or more literacy based assessments. They have been split into groups for the following:

  • reading comprehension
  • phonics
  • literacy 

Next Review to assess the impact of 2019-20 spending 

The next review will take place in September 2020.
