Year 7 Catch-Up Premium

Year 7 catch-up premium is additional to the main school funding and is targeted for each student in Year 7 who did not achieve at least Level 4 in reading and/or Mathematics at Key Stage 2. 

 

Year 7 Catch-Up Premium – 2016-17 Outcomes

For the financial year 2016/17 the school received £11,500 (matched to 2015-16 funding) in catch-up premium funding.  This is designed to support students who have not reached Level 4 in English and/or Maths at Key Stage 2.  The impact of our interventions has been generally successful and will be adapted to increase progress for 2017/18.

At Claydon High School 41 students who were below Level 4 received catch-up premium for either English or Maths or both.

English

  • 27 students received intervention and additional support. 
  • 93% of students made positive progress. 
  • 26% of students made more than expected progress and exceeded their targets.

Maths

  • 30 students received intervention and additional support.
  • 60% of students made positive progress and therefore a number of students will continue with support into Year 8.

English & Maths

  • 17 students received support in both subjects.
  • 82% made progress in both subjects.
  • 94% made progress in English.
  • 82% made progress in Maths.
  • In addition all Year 7s undertook ‘numeracy ninjas’.

 

Plans for 2017-18

For the current academic year (anticipated funding of £11,500), alongside the interventions of last year, we will also:

  • Increase the focus on Year 7 class support and tuition.
  • Purchase new assessment materials for group intervention sessions.
  • Target the use of LSAs to support ‘catch-up’ students in lessons.
  • Liaise with subject teams to develop common approaches to literacy and numeracy across the curriculum using new look school planner.
  • Raise the profile of lifelong learning skills to “Be the Best For Life”.
  • Change the curriculum structure for Year 7 to allow us to target support.

MADAGASCAR — Congratulations!

Huge congratulations to all the cast and crew who took part in our production of Madagascar. The show couldn't run without our very talented students but also our backstage crew and those people who gave up valuable time to support with refreshments, front of house, sound and lighting, costumes, hair and make-up, props, scenery etc... It was great to see all your hard work and weeks of rehearsals culminating in stunning performances across two nights. The singing, dancing, acting and comedy moments were superb! Sincere thanks also to parents/carers for their support and to those who came to watch the show, we hope you enjoyed it.

 

Claydon Bake Off

Well done to all those students and staff who entered the 'Claydon Bake Off'. We had some truly amazing cakes that would have competed with the professionals and it was very difficult to judge!

Congratulations to our overall winners, Jasmine S in the 'Showstoppers' category, who made the large chocolate/cherry cupcake and Ella in the 'Small Bakes' with her mini carrot cakes. Well done to runners-up: Bethany and Erin, Lottie, Lucy and Jasmine C. We must also mention Mrs Lovell-Brown, winner of the staff category.

Lastly - a big thank you to Ellie T who worked very hard to organise the event, ably assisted by Faith, Alex and Joseph.
