Catch Up Premium

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch up premium provides schools with additional funds for each year 7 student who did not achieve age-related expectations in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

This money is to pay for extra help so that these pupils catch up in literacy and numeracy as soon as possible. The earlier students catch up, the earlier they can access the secondary curriculum more fully.
