Catch-up funding

The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium gives schools additional funding to support Year 7 students who did not achieve the expected standard in literacy or numeracy at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2). The intention is that this funding accelerates the progress of these pupils, to allow their attainment in literacy and or numeracy to improve.

2018 - 19 

In 2018-19 Fullhurst received a total of £31,369 for eligible students. Spending of this funding has been allocated based on strategies which have proven to be successful in the past. The funding is being spent to facilitate intervention in the following ways:
  • A specialist primary trained teacher
  • A specialist Level 3 teaching assistant 
  • Increased small group support for students in literacy and numeracy.
  • Extra English and or  Maths curriculum time.
  • Increased transition activities (for example, communication with feeder primary schools, Fullhurst teachers working with feeder primary teachers, induction activities).
