Year 7 Catch-Up Funding

OFSTED Inspection 2014 – “Lowering-attaining students receive strong and effective support, both in class and through targeted additional interventions. As a result, most make very good progress.”

The Derby High School is committed to ensuring that Year 7 students who arrive below national standards are provided with additional support with literacy and numeracy so they can access the Key Stage 3 curriculum and beyond.

The Catch-Up money is being used to provide focused help and support in the classroom and additional interventions outside the classroom.

 

What is the impact of our Catch-Up Money?

In 2015 low ability students at The Derby High school made significantly more progress than did low ability students nationally (including English GCSE). This is for the third successive year.

Literacy

  • 22 out of the 35 students who came in 2014 on a level 3 or below reached a level 4 at the end of 2015
  • 6 of the remaining 13 students made 1 or 2 sub levels of progress

Numeracy

  • 20 out of 33 students who came in 2014 on a level 3 or below have now reached a level 4 at the end of 2015
  • 10 of the remaining 13 students made 1 or 2 sub levels of progress
