Use of the Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated by the Department for Education to schools on the basis of the numbers of children entitled to and registered for free school meals (FSM) at any point within the last six years and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.  The expectation is that this additional funding will be used to support Pupil Premium eligible students and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

The Covid-19 Catch-Up Premium funding is additional funding from the Department for Education to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (Covid-19).  This is especially important for the most vulnerable students and students from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected.  Mainstream schools will get £80 for each pupil from reception to year 11 inclusive.

The school have chosen to use a blended approach when allocating resources, taking into account the most up to date research and evidence from the EEF and other sources.
