Year 7 Catch Up Funding


Year 7 Catch Up 2015 to 2016

Lytchett Minster School was allocated £17,000 in funding as part of the Year 7 Catch Up initiative.

Literacy and numeracy support is provided through small group intervention.

Year 7 catch up funding has in the past been directed towards those Year 7 students who need greater support with their literacy and numeracy skills. In 2015/2016 funding went directly towards our Year 7 literacy support programme and Year 7 Maths mentor.
