The Excel Academy

Year 7 Catch-Up Fund


The Government has made a commitment to provide additional funding to schools/academies for each Year 7 student who did not achieve the required standard in the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum Tests in reading and/or mathematics. The purpose of this funding is to enable schools/academies to deliver additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support in small groups, for those students that most need it.

We will be using this extra funding to provide additional support to those Year 7 students in order quickly to secure them a Grade 1, so that they are able to reach their full potential at the Academy.

This year the funding is being used to provide extra literacy and numeracy interventions each week, delivered in part by a qualified primary school teacher and SEN specialist workers where appropriate. We will also be using the funding for extra resources these students can access at home.
