Catchup Premium

The Year 7 catch-up premium is a type of funding additional to the main school funding. The premium was previously provided to schools with an additional £500 for each Year 7 pupil who did not achieve at least Level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2. The Government have continued to allocate schools this funding based on a formula using previous years’ attainment, as we no longer have levels in Key Stage 2.


Schools are free to spend the catch-up premium as they see fit within specific parameters At Quarrydale we may use funding to support some of the following activities:

  • Quality first teaching
  • Individual tuition in addition to classroom teaching
  • Intensive small-group tuition
  • Purchasing external services and materials to add to those provided by the school, for example tutor services or proven computer-based learning or online support
  • Summer or holiday schools to deliver intensive catch-up over a short period
  • Other subject specific interventions
