Year 7 Literacy & Numeracy

Updated to show information for academic year 2015/2016


Background...

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or mathematics at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). At St Christopher’s School we use the funding to allow us to help support children in their reading and writing
