Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up

Overview

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings, additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

Allocations for the financial year 2017 to 2018

In 2017 to 2018, funding to schools is allocated on the basis that they receive the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2016 to 2017. It will be adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort, based on the October 2017 census.

The national curriculum tests at the end of key stage 2 (KS2) are administered in mathematics, English reading and English grammar punctuation and spelling. Scaled scores have been used to report the results of these tests in 2016.

A pupil’s scaled score is based on their raw score which are converted into a scaled score, to ensure accurate comparisons of pupil performance over time. Every scaled score represents the same level of attainment for a pupil each year, so a pupil who scores 103, for example, in 2016 will have demonstrated the same attainment as a pupil who scores 103 in 2017. A scaled score of 100 will always represent the expected standard on the test. Pupils scoring 100 or more will have met the expected standard on the test.

The range of scaled scores available for each KS2 test is the same and will stay the same in future years:

• 80 is the lowest scaled score that can be awarded

• 120 is the highest scaled score

A pupil awarded a scaled score of 100 or more has met the expected standard in each test.

A pupil awarded a scaled score of 99 or less has not met the expected standard in the test.

This document identifies catch-up strategies and interventions which are specifically aimed at students in Year 7 who are behind in literacy and numeracy. Low attainment is defined as attainment below age-related expectations in a particular curriculum subject or skill. This includes basic skills such as reading and numeracy.

The focus is on high impact strategies that will bring about quick and sustainable improvements in literacy and numeracy for identified students.
