Year 7 Catch-Up Funding

In 2012/13 the Government made a commitment to provide additional funding for each Year 7 pupil who did not achieve at least level 4 in the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum tests in reading and /or maths.

In 2016/17 a total of £15,913 was awarded to Moseley Park for supporting pupils with low prior attainment at Key Stage 2.  In order to support these pupils the money was allocated to:

  • Additional staffing in Learning Support, English and Maths departments to allow for smaller teaching groups
  • Additional staffing recruited to the Humanities department to support the high need of literacy in this area
  • One to one intervention support programme for English and Maths delivered by specialist teachers
  • Resources for support in the reading programme
  • Peer and adult reading mentors
  • Additional learning resources for Literacy and Maths Mastery
  • Creation of a handwriting programme with a focused delivery for a period of time, carefully monitored and tracked for progress in lessons
  • Provision of a homework and reading club after school
