Pupil Premium & Other Funding

Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011.  From September 2012, schools now receive specific funds to support students from low-income families who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been at any point in the last six years (Ever 6), looked after children (CLA) and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces (SC), under the umbrella, Pupil Premium (PP).

Schools have the autonomy to spend the funds as they wish, with the aim of reducing the attainment gap between Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium students. The Government and governors hold schools to account with regards to the impact of this spending and all schools are required to publish this information on their website.

Covid Catch-Up Premium

Covid Catch Up funding was received in the 2020/21 academic year and it was noted our accounts that we made the decision to carry this funding forward to 21/22. It was used to fund and additional maths teacher to provide intervention for students who had fallen behind in their studies due to Covid-19. Class sizes were reduced in Year 11 to allow for an improved teacher:student ratio so that students could benefit from a bespoke, personalised learning experience. The recent Year 11 mock results have proved that this intervention has been beneficial and the final impact of this funding will be documented in the 21/22 accounts at financial year end.
