Catch Up Premium

Year 7 Catch-Up Premium 2017/18


The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools 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 Maricourt, 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 schools will receive the same overall amount of Year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2016 to 2017, adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort, based on the October 2017 census.

  • Students on roll (2017/18) Year 7 – 194
  • Number of pupils with a scaled score of 99 or less in reading – 38
  • Number of pupils with a scaled score of 99 or less in maths – 28
  • Total amount of Catch-Up Premium (indicative) - £6800

How we will use the Catch-Up Premium


Maricourt Catholic High School uses this funding to employ staff to deliver the 'Catch Up' Intervention Programme.

'Catch Up' offers structured small group, early interventions proven to significantly improve the achievement of learners who find literacy or numeracy difficult. Each intervention begins with diagnostic/formative assessments which enable the tutor to identify an appropriate focus for teaching for the individual learner (for literacy, a book of an appropriate level of difficulty; for numeracy, activities of an appropriate level of difficulty that address a specific component of numeracy).

Each intervention then comprises a number of small group teaching sessions each week, delivered by specialist staff, in which the learner reads from the chosen book/takes part in the chosen numeracy activity, and completes some linked writing/recording that addresses identified miscues. Throughout both interventions, the emphasis is on providing effective personalised learning support for the individual learner within a positive, supportive and enabling framework. Regular assessment and monitoring of the learners progress will take place.

In addition to the ‘Catch up’ Intervention Programme, we also provide our pupils with extensive opportunities to improve their literacy and numeracy, more details of these can be found at www.maricourt.net/about/parents/literacy and www.maricourt.net/about/parents/numeracy

Year 7 Catch-Up Premium 2016/17


In 2016/17, the Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium gave schools additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve a scaled score of 100 in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2). The 2016/17 Catch-Up Premium allocation was also committed to the employment of specialised intervention teachers.

Catch-Up Literacy


An English tutor delivered Catch-up Literacy, working intensively with all of those pupils who did not achieve a scaled score of 100 at KS2. 61 pupils started Year 7 with a scaled score of below 100. As a result of this intervention, 59 pupils have made significant progress and have reached, and in a lot of cases exceeded, the expected standard. 2 pupils will continue to receive support in Year 8. 92% of the pupils who received the intervention finished Year 7 on a minimum Silver Flight Path in Reading.

Catch-Up Numeracy


A Numeracy tutor delivered Catch-up Numeracy, working intensively with all of those pupils who did not achieve a scaled score of 100 at KS2. 45 pupils started Year 7 with a scaled score of below 100. As a result of this intervention, all of these pupils have made significant progress and have reached, and in a lot of cases exceeded, the expected standard. All pupils who received the intervention finished Year 7 on a minimum Silver Flight Path in Maths.
