Coronavirus (COVID-19) Lockdown Catch-Up Premium
In light of lockdown and the closure of schools, the Government has funded a catch up premium of around £80 per student to meet costs in addressing gaps in learning. Our school’s plan for the use of this money is included within the overall catch up provision document below -
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 2019 to March 2020 was £17,264.
How is the money spent?
At the start of each financial year, going forward, Carr Hill High School will publish, on our School Website, an outline of how we intend to spend our Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium funding for the coming year.
Papers copies of all documents can be requested via the school reception.
