Year 7 Catch-up Premium

The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium provides academies with an additional £500 for each Year 7 student who did not achieve at least Level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

In 2016 to 2017 schools will receive the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2015 to 2016.  Allocations can be calculated from information received from feeder primary schools about students’ performance in the Key Stage 2 assessments.

In 2015-16 the academy received £6,500 Literacy & Numeracy Catch-Up Premium funding for 13 Year 7 students which was used to:

  • provide intensive individual small group tuition in addition to classroom teaching by Maths and English specialists
  • purchase books to support the Monoporead Programme
  • Individualised Maths Programme

We assess the effect on attainment in Literacy & Numeracy through:

  • moderation of key assessments in writing and reading and maths
  • “MathSpace” software which measures performance related to new GCSE Levels
