Additional Funding

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings, additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG), which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Schools are free to spend the PPG as they see fit. However, they are accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support students from low-income families. New measures of success will be included in the DfE performance tables; these will capture the achievement of those disadvantaged pupils covered by the PPG.

Covid-19 Catch Up Funding 2020-2021

Following the disruption of school closures due to the global pandemic, the government have awarded two catch up grants for schools to use to support students in catching up on their learning fro 2020-2021. The 6th form grant is allocated based on deprivation and the 11-16 grant allocated at a fixed cost of £80 per child.Schools are free to spend the Covid grant as they see fit. However, they are accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support students affected by Covid-19.
