Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up


St. Anthony’s School

Year 7 Literacy & Numeracy Catch-up Premium

What is this premium?

The government gives extra funding called The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium to state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings. This additional funding is to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

For 2017 to 2018, funding is allocated to schools on the basis that they receive the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding that they received in 2016 to 2017. It will be adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort, based on the October 2017 census.

At St. Anthony’s, many of our pupils are considerably below where they should be at Year 6. This is due to the nature of their social, emotional and mental health difficulties.
