Catch Up Premium

Catch Up Premium Overview

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides schools with an additional £500 for each Year 7 student who did not achieve at Expected National Standards in reading and/or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

At Christ’s School the additional funding was put towards the cost of our English and Maths intervention lessons, where students received intensive and targeted specialist subject support in small groups.

In addition, the school ran a weekly paired reading programme where trained Year 10 mentors read with the Year 7 “Catch Up” students on a weekly basis.

 

Christ’s School 2019-20: £8,616

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides schools with an additional £500 for each Year 7 student who did not achieve at Expected National Standards in reading and/or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

At Christ’s School this additional funding is used towards the cost of our English and Maths intervention lessons, where students receive intensive and targeted specialist subject support in small groups. 

In September 2019, 10 Year 7 students were identified as needing additional Maths and English intervention.

This intervention started in September; those students received one additional lesson per week of Maths and/or English, delivered by a specialist teacher.

In addition, those who have not met the national standard “scaled score” for reading followed the intensive “Bedrock” reading programme which helped build vocabulary explicitly whilst encouraging reading at a personal level.
