Year 7 Catch-up Funding - 2019-20
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.
Thirty five students started at Hednesford Valley High in September 2019. None of the students achieved Level 4 in Reading or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2. This means the school should received £17,500 to provide additional support.
The school plans to:
a) Carry out 1:1 reading interventions and Speech Enrichment and Communication (SpEAC) project by a member of staff trained to do this throughout the year.
b) Teaching staff to work through new Schemes of Work for Maths for a full year.
