Year 7 Catch-up
YEAR 7 LITERACY AND NUMERACY CATCH-UP PREMIUM
The Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy premium is additional funding given to schools to support Year 7 students who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. The Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium ceased in 2019-2020.
Consistently, our students entering the School with low prior attainment data at Key Stage 2 perform significantly above the national average by the end of Key Stage 4. In fact, on average, students achieve a P8 score of 0.60+ – this means each child achieves, on average, half a grade better than the average result expected from their starting point.
