What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 in order to narrow the achievement gap between Pupil Premium students and their peers. Pupil Premium students include those entitled to free school meals (at any time over the last six years), those who are currently or were previously in care with the local authority, and any children whose parents are in the armed forces.
The government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between disadvantaged children and their peers, raising both attainment and aspiration, by ensuring that the funding reaches the pupils who need it the most. The Pupil Premium is used to provide additional support in a wide variety of ways and is targeted to benefit those children who qualify for additional funding.
In addition to Pupil Premium we also receive extra funding for Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up; for details please go to the Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up page.
How is the Pupil Premium budget spent?
A detailed budget for the Pupil Premium funding is produced each year. The strategies are wide ranging and have been assessed against the Sutton Trust Toolkit for potential impact. Examples of interventions include:
Breakfast and Homework Clubs
Small group Tuition
Use of Learning Support Assistants and Pastoral Support
