Catch-Up Premium – Literacy and Numeracy

DfE Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium funding provided schools with funding for students who did not achieve expected national standard in Reading and/or Maths in the National Curriculum Tests at the end of Key Stage 2. The “ring-fenced” funds were provided to all state-funded schools with a Year 7 cohort and were spent on provision which enabled the students to “catch-up” with their peers during the first year of Key Stage 3.

The final year of payments was for the 2019-20 academic year.  The action plans can be found via the links below:

 Recovery Premium

First introduced for the 2020-21 academic year The DFE Covid-19 Catch-up premium is funding available to the academy as part of a programme to recover the learning loss during the pandemic. This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected. The Academy has developed an approach to support these pupils by focusing on three key areas from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) tiered approach:

Teaching– CPD to support key teaching and learning strategies Behaviour for Learning, Accurate assessment of pupil progress and appropriate intervention, Social and Emotional Learning, ICT Infrastructure, Remote Learning Access.

Targeted Academic Support– Structured interventions, Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up, holiday revision sessions.

Wider Aspects – Effective remote learning, ICT and Behaviour for learning, Well-being.
