Pupil Premium 2018-19

The pupil premium is additional funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged students and close the gap between them and their peers.

Secondary schools receive £935 for students in year 7 to 11 who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.

Schools also receive £1900 for each student who has left local authority care because of one of the following:

  • Adoption
  • A special guardianship order
  • A child arrangements order
  • A residence order

Children who have been in local authority care for 1 day or more also attract £1900 of ‘pupil premium plus’ funding. Funding for these students does not come into school, it goes to the virtual school head (VSH) in the LA who looks after provision or the child.

Please see further documentation below, including this years action plan and raising achievement document.
