Catch-Up Grant

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Grant

Schools currently receive catch-up funding to provide support for those students who failed to meet the expected standard in reading and numeracy at the end of Key Stage 2. At Hinckley Academy we provide this support in the form of one-to-one, small group and whole group tailored sessions focusing on literacy and numeracy, depending on the individual needs of the students.

Catch-Up Premium Funding

Students who did not achieve the expected standard in English (reading) and/or their Maths at the end of Key Stage 2 are allocated additional funds in Year 7. This funding is known as the Year 7 Catch-Up Premium. The qualifying score at KS2 was any pupil who scored less than 100 marks in their Reading and/or Maths assessments.

The funding enables the school to deliver additional support for those students that need it, so that they can catch up with their peers.

The report below summarises how we spent last years funding. It also provides information on the outcomes of the spending.
