Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium
In 2017-18 £7,551
In 2016-17 £7,500
The allocation was used towards the provision of a breakfast club for literacy or numeracy (or both) depending upon the attainment on entry of the pupil. The literacy strand has a programme which builds confidence in reading and grammar. Maths skills and literacy for maths are taught in the numeracy club. The programme is delivered in school by staff and also by external specialists.
A review of the impact of the approach last year has shown that some pupils have made excellent progress during their time in Year 7. In addition, pupils may be supported by the provision of an alternative curriculum, which allows these pupils to focus on developing skills such as numeracy, literacy and social skills.
