There were thirteen Year 7 students who were below Level 4 on entry to the Academy in September 2014. Ten of these students were below Level 4 in English and seven were below in Maths. These students attended intervention sessions after school from entry to help them to improve their levels. Both cohorts followed programmes aimed specifically at moving from Level 3 to 4. In Maths, 3 of the 7 students have achieved a Level 4 with the remaining 4 having improved their levels by at least one sub-level but not achieving Level 4: they will continue with interventions in Year 8. In English, 6 of the students achieved Level 4 and the remaining 4 improved by at least one sub-level but did not achieve Level 4: they will continue with interventions in Year 8.
Funding for 2014/15 was £11,000.
There were 23 Year 7 students who were below Level 4 entry to the Academy in September 2015. 10 of these students were below Level 4 in English and 13 were below in Maths. These students have been and will continue to attend dedicated sessions after school to help them improve their levels.
Funding for 2015/16 was £9,500.
In Maths, 9 of the 13 students had achieved a Level 4 by the end
of Year 7, with the remaining 4 students enrolled on a continuing programme of
Interventions in Year 8. In English, all 10 students achieved a Level 4 by the
end of the academic year. All of the students will continue to be tracked across
the coming academic year, by the Interventions team, to ensure skill retention.
30 Year 7 students were admitted to the Academy, whose data showed that they were not yet Secondary Ready. Of these, 23 students scored less than 100 in Maths, and 23 in English.
Interventions sessions have been put in place both before and after school, to target their individual needs and effect progress.
Funding for the year totalled £7,442.
