Year 7 Premium

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium
The DfE has made available additional funds to schools to improve the progress of students, known as the Year 7 Catch-Up Premium. Bentley Wood High School receives Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium to improve the attainment of pupils who have achieved below 100 in reading and/or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. This is a new identification measure for 2016/2017 so information given in previous years is not exactly comparable.

Objective
To improve progress and attainment of students in English and/or mathematics who have not achieved above 100 in reading and/or mathematics at Key Stage 2 and thus ensure full access to the secondary curriculum.
