The school receives funding to support students who enter Year 7 with below expected attainment in Reading and or mathematics. This funding is known as ‘Catch Up’ and the school receives £500 for each student in this category.
At Bruntcliffe Academy we use this funding to provide targeted short term Literacy and Numeracy Intervention designed to accelerate progress in these areas. After an initial assessment of need, gaps in learning are identified and bespoke programmes of study are developed and delivered which are designed to ensure students make rapid progress in these areas.
Intervention Teams work closely with the mathematics and English departments when developing personalised programmes to ensure links to the curriculum are included.
