Y7 Catch-up Funding

What is Catch-up Funding?

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding (£500 per pupil) to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2). All state-funded schools with year 7 pupils receive this funding.
The money is to be used by schools to deliver additional tuition, intensive support in small groups, or to deliver any initiatives that will enable pupils to be at the expected level in Maths and English. Due to the learning difficulties of the students who attend Beacon Hill, none of our Year 7 students achieved the required level by the end of their primary education.

All our students are supported by staff who have knowledge and expertise in working with young people with additional needs, and are taught in small groups with a high staff: student ratio. Therefore the TLR’s in English and maths identify resources and programmes that would support those students who require additional help.
