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.
How is the money spent?
At the start of each financial year, going forward, Carr Hill High School & Sixth Form Centre 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.
