Year 7 Catch-Up Premium

The Year 7 catch-up premium is used by Helsby High School to deliver additional tuition or intensive support in small groups, giving pupils valuable strategies which will help them make progress.

The government has allocated a maximum of £500 in respect of each pupil who was at a maintained school in year 6 who had not attained level 4 in reading and/or mathematics.

At Helsby High School, catch–up funding in 2015-16 was £7,000.
