Year 7 catch-up premium
We receive some educational funding each year for Year 7 students who have not achieved 'expected' in reading and/or maths at Key Stage 2.
The Academy at Shotton Hall received additional funding of £13,129 for each Year 7 who did not achieve 'expected' for the academic year 2019/2020. The additional grant has been primarily used to target support in small groups.
