Year 7 Catch-up Premium

The literacy and numeracy premium helps schools provide additional support in literacy and numeracy to students.


Which students benefit from the Catch-Up funding?

The funding is provided for all students who did not achieve 'expected standard' in English reading, English writing and mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2.

How will this school use this funding?

Effective funding to support catch-up may include:

  • Individual tuition in addition to classroom teaching
  • Intensive small-group tuition
  • Purchasing external services and materials to add to those provided by the school

How is funding paid to this school?

The Education Funding Agency (EFA) pays catch-up funding directly to our school.

Who decides on how the funding is used?

We have agreed a policy and protocols for catch-up between our Headteacher and Governing Body.  This is to guide us on how we use this extra funding and to make sure it delivers value for money.

Our Headteacher and Leadership team will regularly and carefully monitor, evaluate and review these strategies.  We will then report back to the governing body on the progress and impact of the catch-up funding.
