Year 7 Catch-up Funding

The Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium is a government initiative which gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

In 2014 - 2015, school received £11,500, which was spent on increasing the number of Maths and English lessons to five one hour lessons per week.

In 2015 - 2016, school received £13,000, which has been used to provide additional staffing to ensure class groups have a high level of support for Maths and English lessons.
