Year 7 Catch Up

What is Catch-up Premium?

The Year 7 Catch-Up premium provides additional funding to schools to accelerate the progress of identified pupils in English and Mathematics.


What is its purpose?

Many of our Year 7 pupils have underachieved as a result of a range of SEMH barriers to learning such as anxiety, attachment disorder, social skills and ASC. A variety of social and demographic factors interact and contribute to underachievement. We receive £2,545 to support Year 7 catch-up. This does not meet the cost of our full range of interventions.

  • We have identified transition as a key area to address as this can lead to and compound anxiety.  We work very closely with families especially those parents of under-achieving pupils. The transition programme includes:
    • Transition days
    • Home visits from HSLW and Year 7 Tutor.
    • Visits to feeder schools
    • Open days
  • Access to ‘Catch Up’ numeracy sessions.
  • Ongoing access to “Numeracy Ninja” interventions.
  • 1:1 intervention/ support.
  • Pupils are assessed on entry and each term to track progress and review interventions
