Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is deployed by schools to narrow the attainment gap between students from lower income families and their peers.Introduced in April 2011 by the Government in addition to main school funding, schools have the freedom to spend PP funding as they see fit, based upon their knowledge of students' needs.


The Pupil Premium Grant per pupil for 2018 to 2019 is as follows:

Pupil premium per pupil

Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as Ever 6 free school meals £1,320

Pupils in years 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM £935

Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority £2,300

 Pupil Premium Leadership

Strategic Leadership is provided by Jayne Scattergood the Strategic PP Lead and Mr M Lipton Operational PP Lead (Curriculum, Progress and Intervention). Part of their responsibility is to support PP and work with middle leaders to accelerate the progress of pupil premium students.


Personal Support for Home Learning Environment

In line with Children's and Families Bill, there will be an element of "Personal Budget" similar to that for children on Education, Health Care Plan.

PP students may access assistance with equipment, uniform and breakfast plus support with resources they may need for Technology lessons as well as funding for school visits and journeys.

Should you feel you require any assistance with this please contact your child’s Student Support Coordinator in the first instance.
