Catch Up Premiums

Year 7 Catch Up Premium & Strategy

Like the majority of schools, we receive funding from the government to provide additional support to students in Year 7 who entered the Academy with a Key Stage Two average score of below 100 in either English or Maths.

It is vital that these identified students catch up to their peers as quickly as possible as so much of a student’s achievement across their different subjects is based on literacy and numeracy.

Please see detailed impact and strategy details 2018-19. 2019-20. Please note schools no longer receive this Government funding.

Coronavirus Catch Up Premium and Strategy

To support our students to catch up for lost teaching during the current pandemic, the DfE have allocated addition funding for specific activities in line with the curriculum expectations for the next academic year. See our detailed strategy report December 2020.

Summer School – August 2021

We were delighted to have secured funding to enable a Summer School to take place during August 2021. Please see for more details and spending statement.
