Schools receive Pupil Premium Funding to raise the attainments of disadvantaged children and close the gap between them and their peers.
Year 7 Catch up Plan
The Year 7 catch-up premium provides additional funding to schools to accelerate the progress of identified pupils in English and Mathematics. The funding is aimed at Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the national expected standard in Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests in reading and/or mathematics.
The funding enables the school to deliver additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support, for those pupils that most need it. At St Andrew’s School Year 7 catch-up programme aims to effectively target the students with specific additional support strategies alongside integrated whole school systems designed to benefit every student. St Andrew’s School received £3,000 for the year 2017-18.
