Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium

What is the Year 7 Catch-Up Premium?

The Year 7 Catch-Up Premium gives schools additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

2018/19 intended catch up spend

At Oasis Lord’s Hill we have 15 eligible pupils in 2018/19. Incoming students are assessed individually on their needs. Of the eligible pupils, all were below the nationally expected standard in English upon entering the Academy. 9 were below the nationally expected standard in Mathematics. 6 were below the nationally expected standards in English and Mathematics.

Based on 2018/2019 funding levels, this has resulted in a budget allocation of £8,997 for this academic year. *DFE guidance indicates a change in funding following the October school census.

How is this money being spent?

  • £2,236 funding towards a Literacy/Numeracy Higher Level Teaching Assistant to deliver English Mastery Phonics and Maths Mastery coaching programme to Year 7 students identified.
  • £4,000 funding subscription to the Accelerated Reader programme, requiring all Year 7 students to follow this programme. All underachieving Year 7 students have a weekly literacy group session to track their reading progress.
  • £1,380 English Mastery Phonics programme and training for English Higher Level Teaching Assistant.
  • £1,380 Maths Mastery coaching programme and training for Maths Higher Level Teaching Assistant.
