PREMIUM

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium is provided by the Government as a means to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). During the year 2015-2016 the funding provided an additional £500 for students below this threshold to help support them during their first year of secondary school. In 2016-2017 the allocated funding matched that of the previous year, with adjustments made to reflect the percentage change in the size of the Year 7 cohort.


Last academic year the funding was used to support the 51 students currently in Year 8 (2015-16) and the identified students in the current Year 7 (2016-2017) cohort. This year we have broadened the support to include 134 students across both Years 7 and 8.


The funding has enabled us to deliver additional tuition to small groups in order to support their progress here at the Whitby High School.

The funding has and will be spent as follows:


o Students in need of this support will have between one and two additional lessons per week to develop these necessary skills.

o Additional targeted intervention lessons with a member of the English department to address any additional literacy needs


o Students in need of this support will have between one additional lesson

o Additionally one form period each week with a member of staff for targeted students.
