Year 7 Catch Up & Literacy Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools and Academies 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.

In 2014-15 we received £12,500 in order to support 25 students. We have used this money to contribute to provide the following:-

1. Additional reading support through a phonics reading scheme.
2. Small group support to develop students self-confidence in lessons
3. Software to enable students to track their own progress

The impact we have had is currently being analysed.

We have not yet had the information to see what levels our new year 7 have achieved and so do not know the level of grant to be paid, but expect it to be in the region of £12,000. We will continue to provide reading and confidence building support, as well as providing software to enable students to track their own progress
