Year 7 Catch-Up Funding Impact Statements

Below is the most recent Impact Statement.  You can find downloads for previous years at the foot of this page.

Year 7 Catch-Up Funding Impact Statement 2017-2018

The Year 7 Catch Up Funding is a government initiative that provides additional funding designed to target resources on those students who have not achieved level 4 or above in Reading and/or Maths. It is estimated that the Department for Education (DfE) provides us with an additional £500 per student so that we can deliver extra support to help these students to “catch up.”

In 2017 2018 we received £7000

Details of how Priory Woods School used this funding to support these students and increase their successes are outlined below:
