Year 7 Literacy & Numeracy Catch Up Premium

Year 7 Literacy & Mathematics Catch-Up Premium 2018 / 19

The Literacy and mathematics Catch-Up Premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve a standardised score of 100 in reading and / or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2.

How we use the Catch-Up Premium

At St Mary's, this funding is used to employ a specialist teacher and to allow for teaching assistant time to provide additional support. This is through the enhancement of lessons, for pupils whose skills in literacy and mathematics are not yet at the expected level upon entry to secondary school.

We provide a variation between in class support from a KS2 specialist teacher, as well as structured weekly small group intervention sessions to support the achievement and confidence of learners who find literacy and / or mathematics difficult. Each intervention begins with diagnostic, formative assessment of each child's specific needs based upon prior and current attainment data, discussions with each child and information from classroom teachers.
