Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium


Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium

During the academic year 2017/2018 the school received £9000 towards supporting students in meeting national expectations in literacy and numeracy. The school uses this funding in the following ways.

  • Purchasing of the accelerated reader scheme for all year 7 and year 8 pupils.
  • Targeting 1 to 1 sessions in English for students with the lowest KS2 scores.
  • Intervention sessions in Maths designed to have an extra group for the lowest academic abilities in this subject.

These activities are designed to target our support for students who need it in order to access the key stage 3 curriculum.


The result of these interventions ensured that all students made progress in their reading ages on intake. Students also made progress to level 4 in Mathematics.
