Catch Up Premium
The Literacy and Numeracy catch-up premium (CUP) allows schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who achieved below level 4 in Reading or Mathematics at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).
At the Snaith School we closely monitor all pupils literacy and numeracy skills and intervene on an individual basis to ensure all pupils make maximum progress in Literacy and Numeracy. For some pupils this may involve extra paired reading lessons or withdrawal lessons where they will be taught either one to one or in a small group situation. Every individual pupils needs are taken into account and every effort is made to support our pupils to ‘catch up’.
Intervention is provided in many ways to help pupils to 'catch up'.
Pupils have extra withdrawal Maths lessons.
This year we are part of a pilot through SAM Learning, an online programme we subscribe to and which we use throughout the school.
Maths, English and Science are using SAM to target groups of Y7 pupils to increase their confidence, narrow any gaps and catch all pupils up to the same level.
Paired reading with Y10 pupils is fun and effective and we are introducing similar paired Maths sessions for Y7 pupils.
Accelerated Maths and English have a large impact on individual progress.
