The Literacy and Numeracy catch-up premium allows schools additional funding to support year 7 students who achieved a scaled score of lower than 100 in Reading and/or Mathematics at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). 2019-20 was the last year of this funding.
Please read the attached document for details on how the 2019-20 funding was spent and the impact of this funding. We continue to use these interventions for year 7 students that require additional support in numeracy and literacy.
Covid-19 Catch-Up Premium
The government COVID-19 catch-up premium has been established to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus. The grant will only be available for the 2020-2021 academic year. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support students to catch up for lost teaching time over the previous months.
