Catch Up Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium is funding from the EFA (Education Funding Agency) and provides schools with an additional funding for each year 7 student who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of key stage 2.

The Vale Academy is proud of the impact that this funding has on student attainment and progress on the personal, social and emotional development of these students.

The academy is committed to developing this programme and continues to explore new and innovative ways of improving life chances for all students. Available below are evaluation reports detailing how we have spent this funding.
