Year 7 Catch-Up Funding

What is Year 7 Catch-Up Funding?

This Government funding has been discontinued for schools from September 2020.

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gave state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings, additional funding to support Year 7 students who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

It provided funding to all state-funded schools with a Year 7 cohort, including special schools, alternative provision (AP) settings and pupil referral units (PRUs).

The document below shows how we have spent this funding in the past and the impact of our work.
