Year 7 Catch Up Premium

Gumley House School


Year 7 Catch Up Premium

Gumley House School received an allocation of £5993 for the Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up premium for the last academic year (2017/18).

Review of the impact of the approach last year has shown that some students have made excellent progress during their time in these interventions.


LOP: 1 sublevel


LOP: 2 sub levels


LOP: 1 whole level

LOP: 2 or more levels











The Catch-Up funding for the 2017/18 cohort is still to be used in its entirety, and the intention is to use the rest of the funding in the following ways:

  • Transition Coordinator - leading 10-week numeracy intervention sessions with specific groups of students.
  1. KS3 English Coordinator - leading 10-week literacy intervention sessions with specific groups of students.  
  2. Students out of MFL for literacy/numeracy support
  3. Speech and Language Therapy
  4. Occupational Therapy
  5. Small group work for behaviour

For the current academic year, we are refining the approach used to support the identified students in the new Year 7 cohort and those in need of support.  The Year 7 Targeted support and Transition Coordinator (TSTC) will liaise closely with the SENDCO and the Head of year 7 to devise a programme which not only aims to develop students’ literacy and numeracy skills, but which also aims to support students in a variety of ways.  It is envisaged that by developing student confidence, liaising with parents and carers, supporting students in improving their organisational skills and by instilling a love of learning, that the identified students will be able to increase their rates of progress across the curriculum. We will be using this experience and our knowledge of the cohort to tailor and shape the programme to match their individual needs.
