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).

Document: 2015 - 2016 analysis
Includes details of how last year’s allocation was spent and the difference it made to the attainment of pupils.

Document: 2016 - 2017 analysis
Due to changes in the Key Stage 2 tests the funding for 2016-17 will be the same as for 2015-16 and will be made available in February 2017. However, we have allocated resources to ensure that the essential work of catching students up to the expected standards begins early in their secondary education.
