Year 7 Catch Up Premium

Overview - What is the Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium?

  The Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2).

  The range of scaled scores available for each KS2 test is the same and will stay the same in future years:

  80 is the lowest scaled score that can be awarded

  120 is the highest scaled score

  A pupil awarded a scaled score of 100 or more has met the expected standard in each test.

  A pupil awarded a scaled score of 99 or less has not met the expected standard in the test.


Aims/Objectives in spending PPG

  To ensure all eligible students receive educational benefit from the funding. 

  To raising the attainment of children who did not meet the expected standard at the end of KS2;

  To improve the core numeracy and literacy skills of this group of students.


Measures to Reach Objectives 

  Until the mandatory re-testing of Year 7s is introduced, the College will continuously monitor and assess the attainment and progress of this group of students to ensure that they are progressing in-line with the cohort and their core numeracy and literacy skills show measurable improvement.
