Our Christmas Fair is on Saturday 23rd November and we would love to see you there. All the normal glitter and 'razzle and dazzle' will be there so it will be a good opportunity to have some fun, meet some people and buy Mr Howells a present!

We are also taking orders for our personalised Christmas cards taken from the (Literally delightful) designs of our children. Please contact the main office, the fund raising Committee or Jilly Fordham who has done an amazing job coordinating things.

Y7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Report

Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up Premium Grant

 The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding (£500 per child) to support year 7 pupils who do not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or math's at the end of key stage 2.

Clearly in the context of our young people’s learning and cognition at The Cedar School this attainment criteria would not be appropriate but we still use the funding to ensure transition from Y6 through to Y7 is smooth, effective and successful for children

In the academic year 2014-2015 The Cedar School received the Year 7 catch up premium for only 1 child.

The allocation was spent delivering an extended pattern of transition visits to school before the start of the year. Once established at The Cedar School the funding was used for key worker time for learning, family support and assessment as well as some 1:1 teaching time.

Particular focus was given to Reading and PHSE support.

 This funding was successful with 2 sub levels of progress being made in reading, writing and maths. 

Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium planned 2015-2016
