Year 7 Catch up Funding

Planned spending

2016-2017

What is Year 7 catch up funding? 

Year 7 Catch Up funding is additional funding allocated to publicly funded schools to help raise the achievements of year 7 pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

PCHS&C has 20 x Year 7 children who are eligible for Year 7 Catch Up funding of £500/student and has therefore received £10,000.

Next Year 7 Catch Up review date is July 2017.
