Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides schools with additional year 7 students who are significantly below standards on entry.

It is provided to all state-funded schools with a year 7 cohort, including special schools, alternative provision (AP) settings and pupil referral units (PRUs).

At Trentham High School, the funding is used to run a smaller teaching group with a Learning Support Practitioner (LSP). Progress in English is also supported through the use of Accelerated Reader.
