The Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch up premium (£500 maximum per student), has been made available by the government to schools to help in providing additional support to year 7 students who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and / or maths at the end of Key Stage 2 (Yr 6).
At HBHS the year 7 catch up premium will be used to deliver additional tuition and intensive support to students in the target group. This additional and valuable support will support students to achieve in line with their peers so that they are more likely to succeed.
In the academic year 2018 / 2019 the catch up premium allocated to HBHS is £2917.00 in total.
Having assessed the needs of the individual students in the target group HBHS allocated the premium to the following areas:
- Individual tuition in addition to classroom teaching
- Intensive small group tuition
- Purchase of materials adding to those provided by the school
The impact of these targeted interventions will be reviewed throughout the year.
