more money for year 7 pupils below level 4 at KS2

13 November 2012

DfE have announced that in January 2013 schools will receive an additional premium of £500 for each Year 7 (Y7) pupil who has not achieved at least level 4 in reading and/or maths at Key Stage (KS) 2. The premium will be available to all state-funded schools with a Y7 including academies, PRUs, special schools and Middle schools which have both KS2 and KS3 pupils.

The money will be used by schools to deliver additional tuition or intensive support in small groups, giving pupils valuable support to bring them up to speed so that they are more likely to succeed at secondary school.

Funding is committed until 2015 and will not be ring-fenced. This shows the Government’s commitment recognising that pupils from these groups should benefit from this additional literacy and numeracy support, as much as any other. School leaders, including governing bodies need to ensure that funding is not simply absorbed into mainstream budgets, but instead is carefully targeted at the designated children.
