Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium (2013/2014)

In 2013/2014, Samuel Ryder Academy received £13000 catch up premium funding. This funding alongside the pupil premium funding was utilised to target those students in year 7 who were performing below their chronological age, had a National Curriculum Level of below 4 in English and Maths and those who had a score of below 90 on their Cognitive Ability Test with respect to the verbal and numeric battery of the test.

Intervention Strategies in English

The Learning Zone provides targeted literacy intervention for the identified students. The intervention is delivered by a team of experienced Learning Support Assistants, headed by a teacher who co-ordinates the provision. There are also six weekly programmes of one to one intervention, running three times a week for twenty minutes each session. The sessions are personalised according to the specific needs of the students. The impact of all provisions is monitored, using standardised assessment tools. The success of all intervention programmes is measured using the Sutton Trust Tool Kit Criteria as well as teacher assessment and examination results. The Academy offers small group teaching classes in English in year 7.
