Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium money is additional funding which is allocated to schools to be used to support children who belong to groups which are vulnerable to underachievement. This includes children who are entitled to free school meals and children who are looked after by the local authority. The Government provide this funding to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The amount of money allocated to schools under Pupil Premium is clearly identifiable. It is, however, at the discretion of the school to decide how it is spent, since they are in the best position to assess what intervention strategies or additional support will be best placed to support their individual pupils to make progress. Schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

The grant may be spent by maintained schools for the purposes of the school; that is to say for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school, or for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools; and on community facilities, for example services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any work done. We have published this information below. 

Pupil Premium 21/22

The disproportionately high impact of COVID-19 on the education of disadvantaged pupils makes our funding and strategies more important than ever. 

For the academic year 2021 to 2022, we have included our strategy statement below. This strategy enables us to include the news of any new children that started with us this year. We have included our additional recovery premium alongside our pupil premium funding to meet the news of the children at Holly Hill school.
