What is the Catch-Up Premium?

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium is a small amount of additional funding which schools receive to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2). The amount allocated for 2019-20 will be announced in November.

This year we will spend that funding on the following intervention programmes designed to raise these students’ progress and attainment:

  • Maths Buddies
  • Reading Buddies
  • Language for Learning mentoring
  • Franklin Scholars’ programme, where Y10 scholars mentor students in a range of confidences, including literacy and numeracy.

 

Catch-Up Premium 2018-19

Last academic year, the school’s total catch-up premium funding was £4038. That funding was put towards the strategies listed above, with excellent outcomes.

  • The average Value Added score for students who had not achieved a score of 100 in reading at the end of Year 6 was +0.89 in English at the end of Year 7, compared with a Value Added score of +0.25 for the rest of the year group.
  • The average Value Added score for students who had not achieved a score of 100 in maths at the end of Year 6 was +0.85 in Maths at the end of Year 7, compared with a Value Added score of +0.25 for the rest of the year group.
