Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium

What is Year 7 Literacy/Numeracy funding?

The DFE provides additional funding to schools for each Year 7 pupil who is not secondary ready in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2. This funding has inherent expectation that pupils are given the support required to ensure they are more likely to succeed ‘at secondary school’. Strood Academy received a grant for the academic year 2016 – 2017.  In September 2016, we had 129 pupils meeting the catch up funding criteria.

Summary of actions

  • Creating smaller intervention groups in literacy and numeracy to cater for the individual needs of each pupil
  • Setup bespoke programmes for the pupils to follow such as Lexia, accelerated reader and accelerated maths
  • Wellbeing programme to support their transition into secondary school
  • Before and after school programmes to support their home learning
