Literacy & 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 level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

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

How we use our year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium

We assess the individual needs of each of year 7 pupils to decide the best way to use the funding and then use the most effective programmes and approaches that we know work.

Last year we used the following interventions:

  • individual tuition
  • intensive small-group tuition
  • external services and materials, such as computer-based learning resources
  • summer schools that help students catch up over a short period of time

How much Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium funding does our school receive?

The total sum for the period April 2017 to March 2018 is estimated at £12,000  For the period April 2016 to March 2017, we received £19,391.00.
