What is Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up funding?
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides schools with 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. It is provided to all state-funded schools with a Year 7 cohort, including special schools, alternative provision (AP) settings and pupil referral units (PRUs).
As a school we must publish details of how we spend the literacy and numeracy catch-up funding and the effect this has had on the attainment of the pupils who attract the funding on our website.
How schools can use the literacy and numeracy catch-up funding
Schools should assess the needs of the individual pupils to decide the best way to use the funding. Schools should select programmes and approaches which have either been proved to be effective or are showing early promise. Effective use of funding to support catch-up may include:
individual tuition in addition to classroom teaching
intensive small-group tuition
purchasing external services and materials to add to those provided by the school, for example tutor services or proven computer-based learning or online support
summer or holiday schools to deliver intensive catch-up over a short period.
