|Transition £1750||Transition activities aimed at lower ability students, including primary school visits by the Transition Leader and SENDCO||Early identification of students to enable a smoother transition|
|Extra Group in Maths (9 periods over a cycle)||Extra provision of a smaller group to work with individual students on particular areas of weakness||Extra tuition in this form has allowed students to make accelerated progress in their numeracy by focussing on exactly areas that they did not understand previously. The impact in Maths has shown that in November only 41.6% were on track and by the end of the year this figure had risen to 75.7%.|
|Extra Group in English (9 periods over a cycle)||Extra provision of a smaller group to work with individual students on particular areas of weakness||Extra tuition in this form has allowed students to make accelerated progress in their numeracy by focussing on exactly areas that they did not understand previously.
The impact in English has shown that in November only 38.3%% were on track and by the end of the year this figure had risen to 71.1%.
|Staffing £21500||The staffing costs are part of a wider whole school initiative to raise standards of lower attaining and disadvantaged students. This includes the partial cost of: a teacher and 3 HLTAs. These members of staff report to the Assistant Principal who monitors the performance of this group following each data input.||The staff are employed with specific roles. The teacher is a qualified primary teacher with a specialism in literacy. HLTAs have specialisms in Maths and English. This extra capacity to intervene has enabled students to make rapid progress in their literacy and numeracy|
|Reading Schemes £500||Dependent upon the individual student, a tailored reading scheme has been developed from individual phonics work to group reading sessions||By the end of the academic year 70% of students who began the scheme had a reading age commensurate with their chronological age|
We receive funding for all students who are below age related expectation in Year 7. This academic year CLCC has received £22 577. We need to ensure that we have a considered approach to provide appropriate catch-up support that is value for money. Spending of this funding is based on strategies which are recommended by published good practice case studies such as; Greg Brook – What works for children and young people with literacy difficulties? 5thedition (2016) and the DFE document Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up strategies(updated November 2017). The funding is being spent to facilitate intervention in the following ways:
- Increased small group support for students in literacy and maths numeracy
- Further development of paired reading schemes
- Greater use of assessment in teaching and monitoring of student progress
- CPD for HLTAs and Intervention Team
- Transition Activities (e.g. communication with feeder primary schools, induction activities)
- Creation of a Nurture Group for students who are not ‘secondary ready’ against College criteria
Spending and Impact 2017-18 (£23 173)
