Year 7 Catch-up Premium
Year 7 Catch up Premium
Catch up premium is additional funding allocated to schools to support students who did not achieve the expected in standard reading or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2.
Each school is allocated funding based on the amount of funding received in the previous year according to Year 7 students on roll. It is up to schools to decide how to use the funding most effectively to support students who have not reach the expected standard in literacy and numeracy.
At Noel-Baker Academy, we use Key Stage 2 Scaled Scored and reading and numeracy Direct Instruction placement tests to identify students who will require intense support to facilitate rapid progress to the expected standard.
