In 2015-16 the government allocated £500 for each Year 7 student who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or mathematics at Key Stage 2. This is based on 2015 Key Stage 2 data and the autumn 2015 school census.
At Wolfreton School and Sixth Form College we are committed to providing effective resources, strategies and support to improve academic outcomes for students not making expected progress by the end of Key Stage 2.
In 2016-17 the funding allocation changed with the introduction of new standardised tests at KS2. The same funding pro rata as 2015-16 is allocated for all students who did not achieve the standardised score of 100 in reading and/or mathematics. Whilst in the previous academic year this funding was used to support 26 eligible students, the new criteria in 2016-17 applied to 103 students.
