Y7 Catch Up Premium 2019 / 2020

Principal of the Funding

The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium gives state-funded 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). The ‘expected standard’ is derived from the scaled scores achieved by pupils in their Year 6 National Curriculum tests (SATs) in mathematics, English reading and English grammar, punctuation and spelling.

Seven Hills School is designated for students with severe and complex learning difficulties; these students would not have been able to achieve in SATS tests and will mostly have been unable to attempt any formal testing. Most students come to Seven Hills working at P Levels or low National Curriculum levels.

The premium at Seven Hills will be used to accelerate learning and progress for all Y7 students regardless of their levels of ability. During the 2019/20 academic year there will be 27 Y7 students. The Catch-Up Premium is therefore projected to be £13,300 based on previous year’s payments.
