Catch Up Funding

Coronavirus Closure

Following on from the updated Government directive on school closures in the Leicester and Leicestershire area, Judgemeadow is now closed from Tuesday 30th June to all students except children of key workers who have registered for a place.

Year 7 Catch Up Funding

The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium gives schools/colleges additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected grade in Reading or Maths at Key Stage 2.

Each year, Judgemeadow receives additional catch up funding. Though, we also allocate further college funds to help support our pupils as they journey through secondary education. Our aim is to accelerate the progress of our lowest-attaining pupils on entry so that we may close the attainment gap between themselves and their peers, and to ensure equal access to the secondary curriculum.

Each year the college assesses the individual needs of eligible pupils, and this year the funding will be spent on targeted programmes including:

  • One -to-one and intensive small group tuition in Literacy (Year 7)
  • One-to-one Accelerated/Accelerwrite ICT support (Year 7/8)
  • Focused English classes (Year 9/10)
  • The Dyslexia Gold Programme (Year7/8/9)
  • Focused inference groups (Year 7/8/9)
  • Supported reading during form time (Year7/8/9)
  • The Catch Up Numeracy Programme (Year 7)
  • The HUB - a purpose built space for pupils to explore during social times; teaching assistants are employed specifically to work with pupils on social skills, games and puzzles (Year 7/8/9/10/11)
  • After School Study Club (Year 7/8)
