LITERACY AND NUMERACY CATCH-UP PREMIUM
The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium was intended to give schools additional funding from the Department for Education to support our Year 7 students who did not achieve at least the national expected level in reading and/or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. The funding was discontinued in 2020.
The wider aims of the catch-up funding was to:
→ To increase social mobility;
→ To enable students from disadvantaged backgrounds to get to the top universities;
→ To ensure that students from all backgrounds have an equal opportunity to be successful;
→ To reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving students nationally.
