Literacy and Numeracy
At Perins we understand that literacy and numeracy is one of the key features to success in future education and employment and, therefore, we place particular emphasis on teaching and assessing these skills. In all departments we employ whole school, cross curricular initiatives to support the work of the English and maths departments in raising standards and achievement in these areas. This ensures that students use these skills outside these subject areas and helping them to apply their knowledge in everyday life.
Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium
The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium provides schools and colleges with additional funds for each Year 7 student who did not achieve ARE (Age Related Expectation) in their reading and/or Mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. The payment is received by schools and colleges mid-way through an academic year (March), once the final destinations of students from the Primary sector to the Secondary sector is recorded by the Department for Education (DfE).
