Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch up premium

Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch up premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least the expected standard in English and/or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

In the academic year 2015/16 we received £6,000 catch up premium.

This was spent mainly on extending the variety of reading books on offer, to encourage progress in reading.

It also contributed to enhancing staffing, to provide more individual learning support to pupils. As well as providing additional support during literacy and numeracy sessions, this has enabled us to support pupil’s social and emotional needs, which means that they are ready to focus on literacy and numeracy targets.
