Year 7 Catch-up Grant

What is the Year 7 Catch Up Grant?

The Department for Education provides additional funding to secondary schools for those students who join in Year 7 not having achieved at least level 4 in Reading and/or Mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2). In 2015/16 this grant was £500 per student. This money is allocated by schools to provide interventions which will help those students catch up in English and Maths with their peers.
