The ‘Catch-Up Premium’ fund is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support those students who join secondary education without achieving a level 4 grade in English (Reading) and / or Mathematics.
Schools can use this additional funding in a variety of ways with the purpose of ensuring that these students are given the very best possible opportunity of ‘catching up’ quickly and not falling behind their peers. From 2014 / 15, the allocation of the Catch Up Premium fund is an additional £500 per student who did not achieve a level 4 grade in English (Reading) and / or Mathematics. (Please note that a student will not receive allocations for both English and Mathematics if they were below a level 4 in both. The maximum the school will receive for each student is £500) All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used. Once information is available, the impact of the funding will also be reported. For the academic year 2016/17, Beaumont Hill Academy received £13,500 (provisional) in Catch Up Premium funding to support 27 students in catching up to their peers in English and / or Mathematics.
