The pupil premium is additional funding given to the Academy from the Education Funding Agency (EFA) to support disadvantaged students to close the achievement gap between them and their peers.
Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium
At The Littlehampton Academy, we assess the individual needs of the students who attract the Year 7 catch-up premium to decide the best way to use the funding.
We select programmes and approaches that we know are effective. This year we are using the funding to pay for:
- intensive small-group tuition
- Intervention/booster provision
These approaches are aimed at helping students catch-up with their peers and make progress in line with age-related expectations.
