Year 7 catch-up premium

This is extra money for the school in addition to the pupil premium.  In September 2012, the Deputy Prime Minister announced that secondary schools will receive an additional £500 for each Year 7 student who did not achieve level 4 or better at Key Stage 2 in reading and/or maths. In 2016 to 2017 the government allocated funding to schools on the basis that they receive the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2015 to 2016, adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of the year 7 cohort. In 2016/17 Lady Lumley’s received £11500 of Y7 catch-up funding and in 2017/18 it received £11500. Assuming funding remains similar we anticipate receiving approximately £11500 in 2018/19.

In order to best use the funding, the school will assess the needs of individual pupils to decide the most appropriate way to support each individuals’ learning. The school will then select the programmes and approaches for which there is the good evidence of effectiveness in improving outcomes.
