Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy

Catch-up Premium 2019-20

Background

Year 7 Numeracy and Literacy catch-up premium: the policy context

The Government is providing funding to maintained schools and academies that is specifically targeted at supporting year 7 pupils who do not achieve the expected standard.

Over the last few years we have received £1,000 per annum to support our pupils, and we expect to receive the same amount again in this financial year.

Our School

Our use of the Year 7 catch-up Premium has been focused on supporting teaching and learning opportunities and making Numeracy and Literacy more accessible for our students. We have explored how making these sessions more sensory helps to support development. We have also funded opportunities for our teachers to explore cross-curricular approaches and ways of embedding Numeracy and Literacy targets throughout all aspects of the curriculum. The premium has supported both training opportunities for staff and the resources to deliver these sessions.
