Catch Up Premium

Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium 

Schools receive £500 for each pupil in year 7 who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading or maths at the end of KS2.

Allocations for 2015 to 2016 

We received £8000 in 2015-16 as a result of the catch up premium.  This money was used to support the following activities and resources which are used to target the development of literacy and numeracy.

  • 1-1 tuition (English & Maths)
  • Resources for our reading group
  • Subject specific computer software (Maths)
  • Contribution towards curriculum provision for students starting KS3 below these thresholds.

Impact:

  • 86% of the students identified achieved at least a 4c in English by the end of Year 7. 
  • 85% of the students identified achieved at least a 5c in Maths by the end of Year 7.

Allocations for 2016 to 2017 

Allocations for 2016-17 are yet to be confirmed; however we anticipate receiving funding in the region of £8000 - £10000.  This will be used to provide the following support:

  • Tuition (English & Maths)
  • Resources for our reading group
  • Resources for developing in-class reading
  • Subject specific computer software (Maths)
  • Diagnostic testing resources (Maths)
  • Resources to support our ‘times tables club’
