Year 7 Catch-Up Funding

How is the Year 7 Catch Up Premium used at Westcroft?

In 2019/20, Westcroft received £7579 to support students who did not reach the national average in Reading or Maths. As Westcroft is a school for pupils with complex cognitive needs this applies to all Year 7 pupils.

The catch up funding contributes to:-

  • Ensuring year 7 pupils are taught in class groups of 12 or less with the additional support of a TA.
  • Ensuring that pupils not making expected progress are timetabled for small intervention classes in English and Maths.

Catch Up Impact 2019/2020 – Progress

All pupils in Westcroft fall below the National standard. Progress is monitored using their baseline line assessment on entry and taking into account the pupils SEND. Please note progress was only accurate until March 2020 due to the Covid pandemic.

  • Language and literacy: 95% of Year 7 pupils made expected progress or above expected progress
  • Maths: 85% made expected progress or above expected progress
