The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

Objectives of Year 7 Catch-Up Funding:

  • To narrow the gap by providing intensive literacy and numeracy support and raise the attainment of those students entitled to Catch-Up Premium.
  • To identify concerns and target intervention and support to accelerate progress.
  • To intervene quickly if any chosen strategy or intervention fails to show impact.
