Catch Up Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium is additional funding given to schools to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in any one of the three key stage 2 tests:

  • mathematics
  • reading
  • grammar, punctuation and spelling

At Maiden Erlegh we use this to fund our Purple Pathway. This is a curriculum pathway through Year 7 and 8 especially designed to meet the needs of these specific children. Classes are taught in small groups with TA support with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy.

We were allocated £10,000 in 2018/19. To see how we plan to spend our funding in 2018/19 please click here.
