Nightingale Community Academy receives an additional grant for Year 7 children who did not achieve at least expected progress in reading, grammar and/or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. The catch-up funding is designed to ensure that pupils who have not achieved their potential at KS2 are not disadvantaged by this and are provided with the opportunity to ensure that they have the same equality of opportunity as their peers by the time they leave compulsory education. In the financial year 18/19 the school received £2,333 of funding for this purpose.
There is no current data for special schools, however in terms of the National picture in 2019, 65% of learners met the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics (combined) at the end of KS2.
Disappointingly none of our learners achieved standard in 2019; 25% of learners were within 5 marks of this benchmark.
Please note the Year 7 catch-up fund ceased in July 2020.
