Year 7 Catch-up Grant

100% of students in this year’s Year 7 intake did not achieve Level 4 at the end of Key Stage 2 in Reading/Literacy and/or Maths. The Department for Education (DfE) provides us with an additional £500 for each student to provide them with extra support to ‘catch up’.

  • We expect schools to use the funding to provide additional teaching support to pupils who have not reached level 4 in Reading/Literacy and/or Maths at the end of Year 6
  • Funding is £500 per pupil who have not reached Level 4 in either area

Using the Funding

  • Schools should assess the needs of individual pupils to decide the best way to use the funding
  • Schools should select programmes and approaches for which there is the good evidence of effectiveness in improving outcomes

 Effective use of funding to support catch-up may include:

  • Individual tuition in addition to classroom teaching. Schools should take care to minimise risks from pupils missing out on mainstream lessons
  • Intensive small-group tuition, perhaps supported by new classroom materials and resources. This could take place at lunchtimes or after school
  • Purchasing external services and materials to add to those provided by the school, for example tutor services or proven computer-based learning or online support
