Pupil Premium Information

Pupil Premium Information

Pupil Premium funding is in addition to main stream funding. It is designed to reduce the national gap in student outcomes between students who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding and their peers. Additional funding is given to schools for students eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), or Children who are looked after (CLA), or children who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years (Ever6).

Students eligible for Pupil Premium Funding make up 2.7% of the school’s population. Progress of each individual student is closely monitored through the School’s data collection rounds; attendance is closely monitored by Heads of Year. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since we are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within our responsibility.

What are the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school?

As a school we have identified four main barriers to educational achievement faced by this group:

  • Lower levels of literacy.
  • Low family income.
  • Need for additional curriculum support.
  • Pastoral concerns.

How is the money spent?

In light of the above we have decided to spend our additional funding in the following ways:

  • Direct Curriculum support used to purchase resources, equipment or additional subject based support: £3,730
    • Languages Faculty: £850
    • Maths and IT Faculty: £680
