The three step approach to Catch Up Funding:

  • Learn what Catch-Up Funding is and how to make the most of it.
  • What’s in it for pupils at your school?
  • What’s in it for you?
There’s £500 available for each year 7 pupil who hasn’t met the required literacy standard in UK schools. All you have to do is spend it on something that helps pupils’ long-term development and then publish its usage to justify the spend.

 

Spending your Pupil Premium

The government’s guidelines on Catch-Up Funding (also known as pupil premium) suggest that you could spend it on 

  • Individual tuition
  • Intensive small-group tuition
  • External services and materials

Identifying pupils that need extra support can be a difficult task, and then providing a solution tailored to each individual pupil can be even more daunting. 

Read&Write literacy software allows you to achieve each of the recommendations above and for every pupil who needs it.

Let's start with your pupils' literacy needs

Investing your pupil premium on Read&Write can allow you to clearly define your pupils' progress. Our literacy software is proven to improve the literacy scores of Year 7s. Not only that, students can use these tools throughout their school years and onwards into further and higher education, as well as the workplace. 

With interactive features that are perfect for modern classrooms, Read&Write caters for many different learning styles, from the shy kids who are afraid to ask questions in class, to dyslexic students who struggle with traditional teaching methods. 

A subscription means you can use it on any laptop, mobile or tablet.

Teachers can give feedback online, interact with pupils at any time and from anywhere, as well as monitor progress and demonstrate improvements. 

Allowing students to use tools like Read&Write not only helps those pupils who are struggling, but encourages independent learning across the school and gives all of your pupils the tools to make them career-ready.
