Literacy and Numeracy catch-up

Catch-Up Programme – Literacy and Numeracy 2017-18

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives state-funded schools, including special schools, additional funding 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). School receive an additional £500 for each pupil in year 7 who did not achieve the expected standard in reading and/or maths at the end of KS2. All year 7 pupils at the East SILC qualify for the catch-up premium funding. The catch-up premium has been used to provide extra support for our year 7 pupils through reading and phonics schemes, as well as providing individual tuition. Further details can be found in the ‘Impact of Catch-Up Premium 2017-18’ document.

Intended allocation of funding  for 2016/17 is as follows:

For 2016/17 the East SILC is allocated Literacy and Numeracy catch-up premium as follows - £500 x 12 eligible Year 7 learners = £ 6000

We will continue to purchase specialist resources to promote learning priorities for cognition and communication for learners working on all three pathways (sensory, towards independence, and independence). Impact will be measured and recorded through our tiered assessment incorporating BSquared and the East SILC Individual Learning Pathways Plans.
