Year 7 Catch Up Premium

Year 7 Catch Up Premium

Year 7 Catch Up Premium is a government initiative which gives pupils additional funding if they arrive at the school in Year 7 below the expected level in English and/or Maths. In previous years this was when a student was below Level 4 and each student received £500 if they were below Level 4 in English, £500 if they were below Level 4 in Maths and £900 if they were below Level 4 in English and Maths.

For 2016/7 The funding is for pupils who arrive in Year 7 with a Scale Score of below 100 for combined English and Maths but is calculated by the funding received in 2015/16 times the percentage of increase of students on roll between 2015/16 and 2016/17 regardless of the actual number of students who have arrived in 2016/17 who are below a Scaled Score of 100.

2015/16 £22,000
2016/17 £23,000
