The Pupil Premium was introduced to help schools to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.  It is based on eligibility for Free School Meals.

  • £935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11

School will also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left local authority care because of one of the following:

  • A residence order

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy catch up premium


The literacy and numeracy catch -up premium gives school additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least a level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of key stage 2.

  4. Internal Inclusion provision
  5. Improving the attendance of disadvantaged students
  6. Creating a culture of aspiration and providing additional opportunities for students to engage in aspiration-building events
  7. Strengthening teaching and learning through focused CPD which meets the needs of the learners
  8. Reducing fixed-term exclusions
  9. Developing increased support for students who present with emotional well-being concerns
  10. Increasing positive rewards for disadvantaged students.
