Using our Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up funding

£31,000 in funding for this was received by the Academy for the financial period of 2017/18. We expect to receive a similar amount in the academic year of 2018/19.

We assess the individual needs of each of the pupils who draw the year 7 catch-up premium and decide the best way to use the funding.

We are currently using the funding to pay for:

  • Individual and small-group Literacy and Numeracy tuition
  • SuccessMaker Literacy and Numeracy software to use will targeted groups
  • An experienced Literacy Director to coordinate a literacy programme for those students not making age expected progress
  • A HLTA to lead CUP sessions (Challenging Under-Performance) to improve Reading, Writing and Spelling
  • 1:1 support sessions
  • Homework support
  • An academic mentor


  • Impact of the Year 7 catch-up premium funding spend is detailed in the Pupil Premium section of the website.
