Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium

 

Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium

Total to be received in 17/18 £13,623

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides additional funding to support Year 7 students who are identified as ‘not secondary school ready’ in reading and/or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2).  The funding is allocated to all schools to enhance the educational provision for students who need additional support and intervention in literacy and/or numeracy.   In 2017/18 the Misbourne was allocated £13,623 in funding.

At the Misbourne, we assess the individual needs of each student who requires additional support and intervention in literacy and/or numeracy to decide the best way to use the funding.  We then select programmes and approaches that are proven to be effective in enhancing literacy and/or numeracy skills.

We use the funding to enhance our provision of a sophisticated range of interventions that include:
