Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium

This additional funding is provided to support Year 7 pupils who have not achieved the expected standard in reading and maths at the end of Key Stage 2. Within our special school setting all Year 7 pupils are eligible for this additional funding.

The school uses the premium on resources, training, individual and small group tuition. The funding is to support pupil’s progress in developing and improving literacy and mathematical skills. Schools can choose how this funding is used to support individual progress and allocate funding accordingly.
