Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium

If your child requires extra support and has low attainment in English or Maths we provide additional interventions to help your child feel more confident, and gain the knowledge required to narrow the gap between them and their peers. 

Identifying low attaining students

Early intervention is key to identifying students who are on the lower spectrum of attainers. These students are identified through liaising with primary schools during the year 6-7 transition process, and a screening process in their first two weeks with us in September. We want every child to reach their potential with us and realise their dreams, therefore we take this process seriously and with sensitivity. 

A summary of our objectives


To ensure that all students have solid foundational numeracy and raise standards across the school. To raise the profile of mathematics amongst staff and students. To improve, develop and embed cross-curricular links for numeracy.


To ensure all students reach or exceed their chronological reading age so that all students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to access and excel in all areas of the curriculum.
