Maths Premium Pilot
The Basic Maths Premium pilot will provide additional funding to educational settings in the most disadvantaged areas of the country to support 16-18 year old students working towards a maths GCSE. The aim of the evaluation is to assess the impact of different funding structures on student outcomes and to understand how change is achieved.
The pilot will test different ways of administering the funds to institutions in order to find out which approach is best to support 16-18 year olds to succeed in maths.
Institutions can choose how to use the extra funds to drive improvements in basic Maths attainment and the evaluation will collect evidence about how the funds have been used and what has been effective.
Around 400 post-16 institutions are taking part in the study.
The pilot was developed and is funded by the Department for Education and the evaluation is funded by the Education Endowment Foundation.
