Year 7 Catch-up Review 2017-2018

In 2017 – 2018 The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College was allocated £25,966 in funding as part of the Year 7 catch-up initiative. Year 7 catch-up funding provides an additional £500 for the weakest students in Year 7 and the funding is based on historic levels of underachievement at KS2. This funding aims to help these students to ‘catch up’ with their peers during their first year at the school.
