Year 7 Catch-Up Funding
How is the Year 7 Catch Up Premium used at Westcroft?
In 2018/19, Westcroft received £10,000 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 is 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.
