Additional Funding

Tollbar Academy receives additional funding to support students who joined the Academy below the expected standard in Maths and/or Reading in Year 7.

The Academy will primarily focus this funding to accelerate progress and increase outcomes at the end of Year 7.

In 2016-2017 the Academy received £24,000.

In 2017-2018 the Academy will receive an estimated £24,000 of additional funding.

The range of provision includes:

  • Reduced class sizes to improve opportunities and outcomes
  • One to one, paired and small group reading lessons
  • Literacy lessons
  • Numeracy lessons
  • Increased number of Teaching Assistants to support in Maths and English lessons

The impact of additional funding for Year 7 in 2016-2017 was that 78% were "on target" in Maths with 66% making at least expected progress and 6% making exceptional progress. In Reading, 70% of students receiving individual support made more than 6 months' progress in 6 months.
