Year 7 Catch up Premium

What is the Year 7 Catch-up funding?

The Government used to allocate extra funding to schools for pupils who achieved below level 4 in Mathematics and/or below level 4 in Reading in the Key Stage 2 assessments. The purpose of the funding was to enable schools to provide extra support and focused tuition in Mathematics and Reading. £500 was allocated to each student whose KS2 results fall into these categories.

In 2016 2017 the DfE allocated funding to schools on the basis that they received the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2015 2016 and adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of the year 7 cohort.

How will the funding be used in 2017 – 2018?
