Spending of the Year 7 Catch-Up Premium
What is ‘Catch-Up’ premium?
Catch-Up premium is a grant given to schools and academies who have students join them in Year 7 who have not reached the expected age related level in English and mathematics required to access secondary curriculum. The funding is to provide students with the necessary materials to enable them to catch up.
Our objective is to support identified Year 7 students in securing aspirational rates of progress in English and mathematics to allow them to ‘close the gap’ with their peers. The ‘Catch-Up’ Premium Funding has been used for targeted support to raise attainment and progress of these particular students.
