Year 7 Catchup Funding
In 2013 the Government made a commitment to provide annual additional educational funding to schools for each year 7 pupil who had not achieved level 4 in reading and/or mathematics at Key Stage 2.
Winchelsea School received additional funding of £500 for each Year 7 pupil who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or maths at Key Stage 2. The allocation for 2013/14 was £5,000 (10 pupils) and for 2014/15 was £4,000 (8 pupils). This additional grant has been primarily used to target support in small groups and for providing additional language opportunities beyond pupils normal experience.
