The Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings, additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).
In order to raise achievement Unified Academy offers:
- Bi-annual testing of all pupils for reading, comprehension and spelling capabilities.
- Weekly 1:1 catch up literacy for any pupils that do not attain the age of eight years and one month in their reading tests
- Twice weekly 1:1 catch up literacy for any pupils with very low attainment in order to reinforce and improve their phonic knowledge
Details of how this money has been used at Unified Academy can be found in the attachment below.
Please note the Year 7 catch-up fund ceased in July 2020.
