Year 7 Catch-Up Funding

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings, 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). (DfE)

 2016~2017 Allocation to Corley Centre £ 5735.00

2017~2018 Allocation to Corley Centre £ 6112.00

2018~2019 Allocation to Corley Centre £6117.00

At Corley Centre, the Year 7 Catch-Up Funding is used to overstaff the core subjects of English and Maths in Year 7. This provides for smaller teaching groups and targeted intervention.  Literacy and numeracy development are both vital to student progress in all subjects, so the impact of this funding is measured by the progress of students across all subjects.  In addition, we know that improved literacy and numeracy impacts positively on self-confidence and engagement in learning.  Summarised below is information relating to the levels of engagement by students as measured through our Approach to Learning Grades (Table B – this is currently being updated)
