Y7 literacy & numeracy catch-up premium

Year 7 Catch-Up Premium

The Year 7 catch-Up premium has been offered by the Government as a commitment to provide additional funding to schools. This is aimed at each year 7 pupil who did not achieve the expected level in the Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests in reading and/or mathematics.  The purpose of this funding is to enable Litcham School to deliver additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support in small groups, for those pupils that most need it.

Year 7 Catch-Up Premium 2017-18

We have currently identified 38 pupils eligible for the catch-up premium in the academic year 2017-18. This is made up from:

 Literacy ONLY 7 pupils
Numeracy ONLY 19 pupils
BOTH Literacy and Numeracy 12 pupils

 

The projected amount of funding for 2017-18 will be £14,047 calculated based on the national policy for funding this year. This is the same level of funding as the previous year, although adjusted according to the students within the year group (as per the guidance from the government). We plan to spend this in a variety of ways, including:

  • Small group and one to one tuition- provided by support staff.
  • Resources to support learning (including Accelerated Reader)
  • Teachers offering extra intervention and support in literacy and numeracy for Year 7 catch-up group.
  • In-class support for literacy and numeracy will take place, and extra TA time allocation to support students in English and Mathematics lessons
  • Reading Intervention We identified 42 pupils eligible for the catch-up premium in the academic year 2016-17. This is made up from:
  • Year 7 Catch-Up Premium 2016-17

The amount of funding for 2016-17 was £14562. This is the same level of funding as the previous year, although increased by a percentage due to the greater number of students within the year group.
