Y7 Catch-up Funding

 Year 7 Catch Up Funding 2020/2021

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives state-funded schools additional funding to support Y7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or Maths at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2).At Chasetown Community School , this funding is used to provide these students with a bespoke curriculum which includes a literacy-based curriculum, additional staffing in English and Maths, and additional reading support.
