Year 7 catch-up premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standards in reading and/or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). This funding aims to help these pupils to ‘catch up’ with their peers during their first year in the academy.

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium 2017-2018

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve at a scaled score of 100 in reading and/or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). This funding aims to help these pupils to ‘catch up’ with their peers during their first year in the academy.

In 2017 to 2018, the DfE will allocate funding to schools on the basis that they receive the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2016 to 2017. It will be adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort, based on the October 2017 census.

51 students entered Year 7 with a reading score below 100 and 42 students entered Year 7 with a maths score below 100.
