Pupil Premium

To compensate for the effects of deprivation on the progress and attainment of children from low income families, the government provides schools with additional funding with the proviso that this money is used to support these children.

Schools receive a set amount of money for each pupil who meets the criteria. The criteria are based on eligibility for free school meals. The calculation is based on census data over the last 6 years. The funds are received during the financial year, but the pupil data is based on the academic year.

The money is intended to be used to reduce the achievement gap between pupils receiving free school meals and the rest of the school population. It is up to individual schools to decide how best to achieve this.

Governors and parents need to know how much money the school receives, how it is spent and what impact it has had on bridging the attainment gap.

A Pupil Premium Review was conducted by colleagues from Samuel Ward Academy Trust in November 2015 (available below). Future reviews will be incorporated into our annual SWAT review. The next review will take place on 20/21st June 2017.
