What is Catch-Up Premium?
Year 7 Catch-Up Premium is a type of funding additional to the main school funding. It is received from the government and is allocated to students who failed to achieve at least a scaled score of 100 in English reading and/or maths at Key Stage 2.
Schools are free to spend the Catch-Up Premium as they see fit within specific parameters.
