Catch Up Premium

Catch-up Premium: COVID 19 (2020-2021)


For this school year, COVID Catch-up funding has replaced the Year 7 Literacy & Numeracy Catch-up Premium.





Year 7 Literacy & Numeracy Catch-up Premium


This funding is provided to all schools who have students with low attainment in literacy and numeracy arriving in Year 7.


Low attainment is defined as attainment below age-related expectations.


The purpose of this funding is to enable schools to deliver additional support, providing a boost to these students’ progress.


In February 2020, Clare Mount received £15,543 extra funding for this.


We have studied the research carefully in regard to intervention strategies that have evidence of success. We therefore, use this funding:


  • To provide training for staff on the Dyslexia-Friendly classroom, Working Memory and strategies to teach students with Autism


  • To facilitate adult reading and paired reading time so students encounter vocabulary that they would otherwise not experience


  • To access additional ICT resources such as iPads for Year 7 which enhance lessons and provide motivators


  • To support a greatly enhanced transition to reduce the impact of this change on our new students and enable them to settle into Clare Mount more effectively
