About TBSHS : Year 7 Literacy Catch-Up Premium
Updated: Wed 2 Nov 2016
Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up funding is additional money which is allocated to support any Year 7 students who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.
Catch-up premium funding is received by the school for all students who join us with a Key Stage 2 Level below a Level 4 for either English Reading or Maths. £500 is received per student in the February following their start with us. This does not mean an individual entitlement to the funding, rather the school has the discretion to spend this money to ensure that identified students are able to make the necessary progress.
Secondary schools are expected to use this money to provide support and intervention which enables these Year 7 students to make accelerated progress at the beginning of Key Stage 3.
