Year 7 Catch Up Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gave 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).

St Andrew’s CE High School received catch up funding of:

£12,480 in 2016/17

£14,931 in 2017/18 

£16,380 in 2018/19 

£15,489 in 2019/20


The Department for Education announced that Year 7 catch-up premium is being discontinued at the end of the 2019/20 academic year and that instead pupils will be provided for under the low prior attainment factor as part of the national funding formula.


The DfE has set out plans for a £1 billion catch-up package for all pupils as a result of the impact of coronavirus.
