Foreland Fields School

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium

Outcomes 2017

 

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides schools with additional funding to support year 7 students who did not achieve at least level 4 in Reading or Mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2).

Owing to the learning difficulties of the students at Foreland Fields School we receive £500 for each of our Year 7 students (measure taken from the autumn school census). This money is allocated to the group to provide additional resources and/or support in order to improve outcomes for the target group.

“The grant does not have to be completely spent by schools and academies in the financial year beginning 1 April 2014; some or all of it may be carried forward to future financial years”.
