Pupil Premium Grants

Catch Up Premium

Overview

Year 7 Catch-Up Premium is a type of funding additional to the main school funding. It is received from the government and is allocated to pupils who failed to achieve a National Curriculum Level 4 at the end of Key Stage 2 in Mathematics and/or English reading.

Trinity Academy received £500 per pupils for 8 pupils (£4,000 in total) for the year 2014-15. As a result of admission and referrals, we had a further 3 students join the school within year 7 that would also have been eligible for the funding.

The Impact of Catch Up Premium

A significantly higher proportion of students who were eligible for the Catch Up premium made expected progress than the remainder of the school population.

All Year 7 catch up students have made accelerated progress since joining Trinity, above national expected. All pupils have improved their rates of progress since joining the Academy.
