Year 7 Catch-up Funding - 2018-19
The DfE provides additional funding to secondary schools for each year 7 student who as not achieved a level 4 in Reading or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2.
Twenty five students started at Hednesford Valley High in September 2018. None of the students achieved Level 4 in Reading or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2. This means the school should received £12,500 to provide additional support.
The school plans to:
a) Carry out 1:1 reading interventions by a member of staff trained to do this throughout the year.
b) Change the Key Stage 3 Maths Curriculum Scheme of Work with new resources and teaching and learning strategies with support from an external company to enable better progress and new interventions.
Detailed reports have been given to the Headteacher and Governors. If you need any further information on either interventions, please contact the Headteacher at the school.
