Ashton Community Science College - Year 7 Literacy/ Numeracy Catch-up Funding 2017-2018

The DfE provides additional funding to school for each Year 7 student who did not achieve the expected standard in Reading and/ or Numeracy at the end of Key Stage 2.

In 2017-2018 we will anticipate we will receive Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium Funding amounting to approximately £17,000 funding.

  • Further developing the library as “The Learning Zone” to encourage reading for pleasure.
  • Books aimed at improving readers to enhance library provision
  • Additional Maths & English lessons for identified students
  • Extra Maths and English sets in both halves of the year groups.
