Year 7 Catch Up Premium

Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the national standard of 100 in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

The catch up funding is designed to ensure that students who have not achieved their potential at KS2 are not disadvantaged by this and are provided with the opportunity to ensure they have the same equality of opportunity as their peers by the time they leave compulsory education. The wider aims of the catch up funding include:-

  • To increase social mobility
  • To enable students from disadvantaged backgrounds to get to the top universities
  • To ensure that students from all backgrounds have an equal opportunity to be successful
  • To reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally
