Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Funding

The 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 in Year 6.


The Forest High School received £4,500 catch-up premium for year 7 pupils in 2015 to 2016.

Schools have been advised that the funding level for 2016 to 2017 will remain at the same overall amount as 2015-16, adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort, based on the October 2016 census. The funding has not yet been allocated and is due to be received on 1 March 2017.

The funding can be used to pay for: individual tuition; intensive small-group tuition; external services and materials.

We will use the Year 7 catch up funding allocation to support the delivery of the Read Write Inc. programme and the delivery of small group provision in Maths and English.
