Year 7 Catch-up Premium
The Year 7 Literacy and Mathematics Catch-up Premium
The Department for Education (DfE) provides 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).
Schools should assess the needs of the individual pupils in their school to decide the best way to use the funding. Schools should select programmes and approaches which have either been proved to be effective or are showing early promise.
Effective use of funding to support catch-up may include:
- individual tuition in addition to classroom teaching
- intensive small-group tuition
- purchasing external services and materials to add to those provided by the school, for example tutor services or proven computer-based learning or online support
Plymstock School was allocated £18 717 to support these eligible students.
