Literacy & Numeracy Catch Up Premium

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

Schools receive an additional £500 for each pupil in year 7 who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of KS2.

How we use our year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium

We assess the individual needs of each of year 7 pupils to decide the best way to use the funding and then use the most effective programmes and approaches that we know work.

Last year we used the following interventions:

  • individual tuition
  • intensive small-group tuition
  • external services and materials, such as computer-based learning resources
  • summer schools that help students catch up over a short period of time

How much Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium funding does our school receive?

The total sum for the period April 2018 to March 2019 was £16,037. 

How is the money spent?

At the start of each financial year, going forward, Carr Hill High School will publish, on our School Website, an outline of how we intend to spend our Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium funding  for the coming year.
