Year 7 Catch-up Premium



The Year 7 catch-up premium is a fund to support pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.


At Fareham Academy in 2018-2019 we received £5,693.00 to support students who arrive with a scaled score in English and Maths of below 90 in their KS2 Maths and Reading assessment. It has been due to the success of employing an English KS2 teacher that we continue to have such success in the progress with these students. In 2018-2019 we continued to utilise the expertise of our KS2 teachers in English and maths and differentiation is a whole school focus to ensure that the needs of all children are met.


We use catch up premium funding:

  • for interventions to narrow the gap by providing intensive literacy and numeracy support and raise the attainment of those students entitled to catch up premium.

  • to identify concerns and target intervention and support to accelerate progress.

Impact of spend


  • The impact of such funding will be monitored through assessment data, assessment for learning, behaviour, homework and attitude.

  • Supportive strategies will be considered depending on the individual needs of students.

Outcome of interactions


  • 64% of students have now met they target grade in Maths and therefore in line with Age Related Expectations

  • 60% of our students met they target grade in English and therefore in line with Age Related Expectations
