Year 7 Catch-Up Premium 2017/18
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives Hope School 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).
A pupil awarded a scaled score of 100 or more has met the expected standard in each test.
A pupil awarded a scaled score of 99 or less has not met the expected standard in the test.
At Hope School, we use this premium to provide strategies and interventions which are specifically aimed at pupils who need support in Literacy and Numeracy.
Students and Catch-Up Premium
In 2017 to 2018 Hope School received the same overall amount of Year 7 catch-up premium funding we received in 2016 to 2017 (£5,500), adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort which for the academic year 2017-18 was £3,667.
