Year 7 Literacy & Numeracy Catch-Up Premium
Purpose of the premium
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).
We identify pupils who need extra support from the year 7 catch-up premium and decide the best way to use the funding, selecting programmes and approaches that we know to be effective.
Examples of activities for consideration include:
- individual tuition
- intensive small-group tuition
- external services and materials
- academically focused summer schools that help students catch up over a short period of time
