Year 7 Catch Up Premium

At Uppingham Community College we receive £9500 per year additional funding to support students who join us in Year 7 that have not met the age-related-expectations from Key Stage 2. At UCC we want all our students to thrive and it is important to us that we ensure students receive a very positive transition into secondary education.

Below are a number of strategies that we utilise to support students throughout Year 7 and during their KS2-3 transition:

  • Enhanced transition activities and visits
  • Specialist teaching to improve literacy skills of students who did not reach age related expectations in Key Stage 2
  • Specialist teaching to improve mathematics skills of students who did not reach age related expectations in Key Stage 2
  • Quality First teaching in English and Maths

We are currently compiling the information from 2017-18 that demontrates the progress of students with low prior attainment. This infomation will be published by the end of September 2018.
