Year 7 Numeracy & Literacy Catch-up premium

Year 7 Numeracy & Literacy Catch-up premium

The school received a sum of £12,500 specifically for Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up for the Academic Year 2015-2016.  A programme of intervention was put in place for 21 Year 7 students that achieved below a Level 4 in their Key Stage 2 SATs scores in English Reading and / or Mathematics. 

In 2015-16 the following numbers of students required Catch Up:

  Number of Pupils
English Only 3
Mathematics Only  15
Both English and Mathematics 3

The money was spent in the following was to enable those students to ‘catch up’ with their peers during their first year at secondary school:

  • IDL programme to support dyslexia intervention and weaker literacy
  • Accelerated Reader Programme
  • HLTA 1:1 / group reading and spelling
  • My Maths online learning
  • Specialist small group intervention
  • Summer School
  • LINC Breakfast Learning Club


88% of the students reached functional reading and 88% reached functional numeracy age by the end of Year 7.

Where progress has not been made, support continues in subsequent year groups.


This academic year the following students are part of the Catch Up Intervention programme.

  Number of Pupils
