The Catch-up Premium, is used by schools to provide literacy and numeracy catch-up support for Year 7 students. It enables those students that did not achieve level 4 in reading and/or mathematics at Key Stage 2, to be given the opportunity to catch up as quickly as possible.
At Esher High School we have a variety of strategies to enable students to catch up and these are designed to meet the individual needs of the identified students. The Catch-up Premium is separate to the Pupil Premium, although there may be a significant overlap of students who are entitled to both forms of support.
Like the Pupil Premium, the Catch-up Premium is reported online by the school annually and contains information on the funding allocation, strategies used and impact of spending on the students.
