Year 7 Literacy & Numeracy Premium
What is it?
The 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).
Reporting and accountability
All schools in receipt of the year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium funding are required to publish:
- their funding allocation for the current academic year
- details of how they intend to spend their allocation
- details of how they spent their previous year’s allocation
- how last year’s allocation made a difference to the attainment of the pupils who benefit from the funding
