Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium.

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 (KS2). The Year 7 catch-up premium allocations for 2015 to 2016 are based on £500 for each pupil who is eligible.

Catch-Up Premium

Due to the nature of the pupils enrolled who was eligible for the funding, Oakfield decided to spend the money in an alternative way. The rationale behind this was to overcome previous barriers to learning and provide a ‘home’ environment whilst they were residing at the school which would impact on closing the academic progress gap over time.
