Year 7 Catch-Up Funding

What is Year 7 Catch-Up Funding?

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides schools with an additional £500 for each Year 7 Student who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and / or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

It is provided to all state-funded schools with a Year 7 cohort, including special schools, alternative provision (AP) settings and pupil referral units (PRUs).

Beccles Free School is eligible for Year 7 Catch-Up Funding. We opened in September 2012 and received our first Year 7 Catch-Up Funding in April 2013.
