Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium 2019-20


National Context:

The DFE provides additional funding to schools to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading and/or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).


This funding is not ring-fenced, however there is an expectation that pupils are given the support required to ensure they are more likely to succeed at secondary school.


Funding for the 2019-20 academic year will be received on 1st March 2020.


Smithills School:

We have identified 127 pupils eligible for the catch-up premium for the academic year 2019-2020. Schools will receive the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2018-19, adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort, based on the October 2019 census.
