The Literacy and Numeracy catch-up premium allows schools additional funding to support year 7 students who achieved a scaled score of lower than 100 in Reading and/or Mathematics at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). 2019-20 was the last year of this funding.
Our funding allocation for 2019/20 was £10,720.

Covid-19 Catch-Up Premium
Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all students make up for lost teaching time.
Our 2020/21 Coronavirus Catch-up Premium allocation will be used to fund the successful interventions used for Year 7 Catch-up Premium and an intensive tutoring programme.

We measure the impact of any catch-up strategies by looking carefully at progress data with our Heads of English and Maths and evaluate our approaches. This is augmented termly via Pupil Progress Meetings with teachers which tracks and aims to overcome barriers to learning. Students make good progress in Year 7 and we plan to continue with small class groups.
