Catch Up Premium

Catch Up Premium


Year 7 Catch-Up Premium is a type of funding additional to the main school funding. It is allocated to pupils who failed to achieve a scaled score of 100 at the end of Key Stage 2 in Mathematics and/or English reading.

Trinity Academy received £6500 for the year 2017-18.

Allocation of Year 7 catch-up premium 2017/18:

  1. Curriculum structure – Year 7 students attend the Lower School where there is a higher staff/student ratio with a curriculum model; the curriculum is structured to enable those pupils who did not secure the national standard in English and/or maths to access learning in small groups and receive 1:1 intervention if underachieving. This allowed intensive and extended support to meet the needs of these pupils, ensuring that their core skills (which underpin the rest of the curriculum) were developed.
  2. Additional support in Year 7 classes – Senior Teaching and Learning Support practitioners support English and Maths alongside the Class Teacher.
  3. Curriculum resources – Reading Comprehension and My Maths to develop and consolidate skills.
  4. Outdoor Education Days – Students access full days outside of school to promote confidence, team building and articulation; all skills that can support them back in the classroom
