PUPIL PREMIUM INFORMATION REVIEW: 2020 - 2021 AND PLANS FOR 2021 - 2022
Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to raise attainment in disadvantaged students and any close gaps between them and their peers.
The document to download reviews how we spent the money in 2020-21 and how we plan to spend it for the coming year with the related impact.
Those eligible for Pupil Premium Funding are:
Students in year 7 to year 11 who are currently registered for or have been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) within the past six years.
Students (according to the spring school census) who have left Local Authority care because of adoption, a Special Guardianship Order, a Child Arrangements Order or a Residence Order. (N.B: If both bullet points above apply, only the sum in connection with the second bullet point will be awarded.)
Students in year 7 to year 11 recorded as an Ever 6 Service Child (child of a parent in the armed forces) or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.
Children who have been in Local Authority care for 1 day or more also attract pupil premium funding. Funding for these students is managed by the Local Authority that looks after the child.
The documents attached show how this money has been allocated in the past and what our initial intentions for spending were at the start of this year along with actual allocations during the year.
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of Key Stage 2. All state-funded schools with year 7 pupils receive this funding of £500 per year.
