Year 7 Catch Up Funding

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium 2017-18

The Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium has been offered by the government as a commitment to provide additional funding to schools. This is aimed at each Year 7 student who did not achieve the expected standard in their Key Stage 2 national tests in reading and/or mathematics (a scaled score of 99 or below). The purpose of this funding is to enable Worthing High to deliver additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support in small groups, for those students who need it most. This does not mean an individual entitlement to the funding, rather that the school has the discretion to spend this money to ensure that identified students are able to make the necessary progress.

Proposed Expenditure for 2017/18

We have currently identified 61 students eligible for the catch up premium in the academic year 2017-18. This is made up from:

Literacy only

41 students

Numeracy only

52 students

Both Literacy and Numeracy

32 students

The allocation of approximately £20,600  is being spent in a variety of ways to help support the students make progress with their English and Maths.

Interventions include:

  • Small group interventions for Literacy and Numeracy
  • Reading, phonic and handwriting sessions
  • Sound Training
  • Literacy and Numeracy co-ordinator roles
  • Resources for interventions
