The PDF below provides information about the Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium Funding.

The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium gives state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings, additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in Reading or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2).

The school will only select programmes and approaches that we know are effective. For example:

  • individual tuition
  • intensive small-group tuition
  • external services and materials

The government provides examples of effective approaches and programmes in their summary of research into literacy and numeracy catch-up strategies on the website.  The Education Endowment Foundation also provides evidence-based information on Reading at the Transition.
