Year 7 Literacy & Numeracy Catch-up Premium

An increasing number of children leave primary schools unable to read or write well. This affects many aspects of their lives including their academic achievements, behaviour and future success. Children might fall into this category for a number of reasons including using English as a second language, have a special Educational Need or simply struggle with the written word.

Children in Year 6 who don't meet the required level for Literacy in their SAT tests qualify for Government funding called Catch Up Premium; that's £500 for each pupil who hasn't met the required standard. This enables the School to provide tools and interventions to help these students get up to speed. The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings, additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

Our year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium funding report shows the following:

  • our funding allocation for the current academic year
  • details of how we intend to spend our allocation
  • details of how we spent our previous year's allocation
  • how last year's allocation made a difference to the attainment of the students who benefit from the funding
