Pupil Premium

Strategy and Impact  2015/16

What is it, who is it focussed on and what is the expected impact?

The government has allocated schools a sum of money which is called the ‘Pupil Premium’.  This is to ensure that all pupils, from Reception through to Year 11, are given the same opportunities to achieve academically and so that no pupil is disadvantaged due to economic or social circumstances. The amount of the grant for pupils in secondary education is £935 per pupil whilst the premium for looked after children and those adopted from care is £1900.

Although not solely for raising attainment, there is a Service Premium of £300 for students who have, or have recently had, a parent working in the armed forces.

The three identified groups entitled to the Pupil Premium are;

  1. students who are currently, or who have been entitled to free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (FSM ever 6)
  2. children in local authority care or adopted from local authority care 
  3. the Service Premium is to support students who have at least one parent working for the Armed Services or have had at some point in the past 6 years (ever 6).

 

Pupil Premium Numbers

Funding is based on the data submitted on the annual January census day. Based on January 2016 census return and incoming Year 7 pupils we have 225 pupils entitled to the grant. This is 17% of our pupils in KS3 and 4:
