Teachers are doubtful that the government's Budget pledge to provide £600 for each "additional" student studying maths at A level will leave their schools much better off.
Chancellor Philip Hammond said today in his Autumn Budget that schools will receive the money if they increase the number of students taking A-level maths, A-level further maths or core maths.
More than £80 million would be made available initially, he said.
The method of calculating the number of “additional” pupils has not been confirmed yet and will be worked out with the Department for Education, a Treasury spokeswoman told Tes. The money is expected to be available from 2019.
