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 2017-18 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 2016-7

Last academic year, the school’s total catch-up premium funding was £3971. That funding was put towards the strategies listed above, with excellent outcomes.

  • Students who had not achieved a score of 100 in reading at the end of Year 6 had, on average, made 1.93 steps of progress from their starting threshold point in English between autumn 2016 and summer 2017 in Year 7, compared with the average of 0.59 for the rest of the year group.
  • Students who had not achieved a score of 100 in maths at Year 6 had, on average, made 1.68 steps of progress from their starting threshold point in maths between autumn 2016 and summer 2017 in Year 7, compared with the average of 1.19 for the rest of the year group.
