The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides schools with additional funding for each Year 7 pupil who did not achieve at least Level 4 in Reading and/or Mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. It will enable those pupils that did not achieve Level 4 in Reading and/or Mathematics at Key Stage 2 to be given the opportunity to catch up as quickly as possible.
All members of staff, governors and teaching assistants accept responsibility for lower attaining pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within a caring Catholic environment. This is an essential, integral part of the spiritual development of the whole College community.
As with every child in our care, a child who is considered to be attaining below expectations is valued, respected and entitled to develop to his/her full potential, irrespective of need. This is carried out in the day to day running of the College and reflected in our mission statement.
