Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch up Strategy and Impact


Windlestone School is a 11-16 year old special school for students with social, emotional and mental health problems.  We offer an inclusive setting for 80 students including residential placements for up to 20 students.  We also have an off-site provision for up to 20 students in keystage 4 where students follow an individualised curriculum including vocational placements.

Windlestone has a commitment to ensuring every young person in our care achieves the best possible outcomes individually.


The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

2019-2020 Predicted Year 7 Catch up Amount

In 2019-2020 the predicted allocated funding is anticipated to be £500 per pupil and with an intake of 16 pupils we would anticipate at least half to be eligible for the funding.   This would give us an estimated figure of £4000.
