Anthony Gell School

Year 7 Catch Up Premium

Year 7 Catchup

The Year 7 Catch-Up Fund was introduced by the Government in 2013. Schools are provided with additional funding to support students who did not achieve at least level 4 in the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum (SATS) tests in reading and/or mathematics. Now that National Curriculum Levels have been replaced with Scaled Scores, funding has been maintained at 2015/16 levels (circa £6500) regardless of the ability of the cohort. This funding aims to help these students to ‘catch up’ with their peers during their first year of secondary school education.
