Catch-up Funding

Catch-up Funding 2018-19

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives secondary schools an additional £500 for each Year 7 student who did not achieve the expected standard in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

In the academic year 2018/19 nineteen students began in Year 7 at Marshfields School, and we received funding for twenty students. All students were below the expected standards in Maths and English, fourteen of which were boys and eight were girls. This means that we received an additional £9,500 to support our students with their Literacy and Numeracy.

This is a secondary special needs school so all twenty-two students have an Educational health care plan; each of the students having a wide variety of needs that have impacted on their previous learning and continues to impact on their current learning.
