Prior to September 2016, the literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gave 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. Schools are required to publically report on its allocation, spend and impact.
When KS2 SATS changed in September 2016, the funding was no longer directly connected to student achievement: schools now receive the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2015 to 2016, adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort.
For the 2017/18 academic year, we expect to receive approximately £18,000 to support Year Seven who did not meet Age Related Expectations in Reading, Writing and Maths at the end of Year Six. Please click on the link below to see how the school uses this funding:
