Amount of funding

Amount received by school

  • 2016-17 = £2000
  • 2017-18 = £2000
  • 2018-19 = £2,295

How the funding is used

  • After school tuition in English and Mathematics
  • Participation in Reading and Spelling Club (weekly throughout academic year)


  • Students attending reading and spelling clubs have increased their reading and spelling ages, with 75% of students seeing an increase greater than that in their chronological age.
  • Students attending catch-up classes have, on average, sustained progress in line with their original pathways in English and Mathematics from the beginning of Y7.

Next steps

  • Continue with strategies in place for current Y7
  • Continue to monitor students previously eligible for this funding as they progress through the school and provide appropriate support and intervention.
