Year 7 catch-up premium

What is catch-up funding?

The literacy and numeracy catch-up funding provides schools with additional funding to support those children who performed below national expectations at Key Stage 2 in English and Maths. It is provided to all state funded schools with a Year 7 cohort. As of 2016-2017, under the new scaled scores system, we will be providing support to students who have been identified as scoring significantly below 100 (which is the expected standard).

LPGS are committed to supporting students who have not made national expected progress in either or both of English and Maths to ensure that core skills are developed. This is to build student confidence in these key subject areas, also to ensure that students can be successful across a diverse and rich range of subjects with a core literacy and numeracy base.
