Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium


The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings, additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2 (i.e. Achieved a scaled score of under 100 in GPVS, Reading or Maths).

As a matter of policy, the school aims to address any underachievement by ensuring high quality “first wave” teaching in all lessons and the generality of the school budget is deployed to maximise this. However, we recognise that in addition to this, some students require additionally differentiated intervention to support them to make sound progress in the curriculum and school leaders deploy additional income such as the catch-up premium to subsidise this.

Please view our catch up Premium Report 2019/20:
