Extra lessons to help in holidays
SCHOOL pupils could be given extra lessons in the school holidays in a bid to improve their English and maths.
The Department for Education has given a grant of £201,500, known as a catch-up premium, to help year seven students who do not reach the expected level in literacy and maths when they finish primary school.
The cash will be split between 13 secondary schools across North Somerset and could be spent on a number of initiatives, such as holding additional lessons during the holidays.
Each school will be given £500 per pupil and will be able to decide best how it should spend the money on helping children achieve targets.
