Year 7 Catch-up Premium Funding 2018-2008 in English and Maths
Year 7 English and Maths Catch up Premium
The English and Maths catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who need additional support. All state-funded schools with year 7 pupils receive this funding.
Allocations for 2018 to 2019
- Year 7 catch-up premium funding is allocated to the local authority and they then pass it onto schools. A year 7 pupil (or year group X and aged 11) recorded on the October 2018 school census will have this funding in the school at that time.
How year 7 English and Maths catch-up premium should be used.
The individual needs of each of the pupils who attract the year 7 catch-up premium should be assessed to decide the best way to use the funding. For example, funding could be used to pay for:
- individual tuition
- intensive small-group tuition
- external services and materials, such as computer-based learning resources
- summer schools that help students catch up over a short period of time
