Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium
The Government will continue to provide additional funding to schools for each year 7 pupil who is below the expected standard in reading or maths in the Key Stage 2 (KS2) national curriculum tests. 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. Each pupil’s scaled score is based on their raw score, which is the total number of marks they scored in their tests, based on the number of questions they answered correctly.
The raw scores pupils achieve in the tests are then converted into scaled scores, to ensure that accurate comparisons of performance over time can be made. A scaled score of 100 will always represent the ‘expected standard’ on the test. Pupils scoring at least 100 will have met the expected standard on the test.
The Catch-Up Premium is provided to secondary schools to support them in ensuring that every pupil in Y7 who did not meet the ‘expected standard’ in mathematics or English can be given additional support
The allocation for 57 students amounts to £13,562
