What is Year 7 Catch-up Premium and how is it used?

The DfE has made additional funds available for improving the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils. This grant is

known the Year 7 Catch-Up Premium.

The funds are primarily aimed at improving maths and English levels at key stage 2 (KS2).

An allocation is made for every pupil who has not achieved the ‘expected standard’ in reading or maths at KS2 as per

the October school census.

The short report available below, summarises how the previous year’s funding was spent and how we intend to spend

this year’s funding. Most importantly, it provides information on the outcomes of the spending and the improvements

made amongst our pupils.

See the attachment below to see how the school used the Catch-up funding in 2017-18.

The plan for Catch-up 2018-19 will be available on 26th March 2018
