Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium

Year 7 Additional funding: Report for 2015-2016

What is Year 7 ‘Catch Up‘ Funding?

Year 7 ‘Catch-up’ funding is money allocated to students who have not met Government floor standards for maths and English on entry to secondary education to ensure a rapid acceleration in progress to ‘catch- up ‘  their peers. His money can be used in a variety of ways to ensure students make accelerated progress. 

Students on entry tend to have much greater literacy and oracy needs than numeracy.

These basic skills underpin all other areas of the curriculum.  For this reason, a greater weight is given to reading, writing and oracy.  

Funding for 2015-2016

Total number of students eligible for Year 7 catch up funding: 37

Total amount of catch up funding: £18,500
