Yr 7 Catch Up Premium

Year 7 Catch Up Premium

The Cavendish High receive Catch Up Premium, approx £5000: funding provided by the government to support those pupils entering secondary school in year 7 working below level 4 in either English and/or Maths. At Cavendish this represents 100% of the students in year 7.

Last year the use of Year 7 Literacy & Numeracy Catch Up Premium was spent on Maths and English Training for staff as well as contributing to supporting the cost of employing our own speech and language therapist. These have led to effective interventions and meant that Year 7 made progress as detailed on the progress charts you can download below.

Over the next academic year we will be using the funding to support the following:

  • A research project run in conjunction with Dr Marion Long - Rhythm for Reading
  • Purchase of additional Kindle Fire HD tablets to enhance accessibility to reading.

Support further developments in communication through the purchase of the Gemini on-line resource for students

Support further developments in numeracy including:


  • Facilitating supply cover for KS3 teacher to undertake training with Edge Hill University through Teaching School Alliance.
  • Help fund resources for Maths co-ordinator planned Maths Day.
  • Buy Numicon Mathematics resources.
