The Year 7 Catch-Up premium provides additional funding to schools to accelerate the progress of identified pupils in English and Mathematics. The funding is aimed at Year 7 pupils who have not met the national standard in the Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests in reading and/or mathematics. The funding enables the school to deliver additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support in small groups, for those pupils that most need it, so that they catch up with their peers.
