Year 7 Literacy and numeracy catch up premium

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch up premium 2018-2019

The literacy and numeracy catch up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 who do not achieve the national standard of 100 in reading and maths in their Key Stage 2 Results.

Bassingbourn will be funded £6700 in line with previous years (This figure remains the same now, despite increase of numbers).  This funding is to help these students to ‘catch up’ with their peers during their first year.

The objectives of the funding:

  • To close the gap by providing intensive literacy and numeracy support and raise the attainment of those students entitled to catch up premium
  • To enhance existing provision
  • To identify concerns and target intervention and support to accelerate progress
