Pupil Premium

Key priorities

To narrow the disadvantage gap by addressing inequalities and raising the attainment of those pupils in low-income families.

What do we expect to see

Targeted additional support strategies resulting in every student, however financially disadvantaged, being able to:

  • Improve their levels of attainment and progress
  • Close attainment gaps relative to school averages
  • Have full access to our curriculum
  • Access our extra-curricular provision

Evaluation of 2015/2016

The 2015/2016 grant was distributed at £935 per disadvantaged pupil and £1,900 per Looked After Child (LAC) and children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 and children who have left care.

Qualifying pupils in January 2015 resulted in a grant of £305,813 for the academic year 2015/2016. 

The expenditure was as follows:             

Item Number of FSM pupils involved Cost

Total: £305,813

The total number of targeted pupils was 299.

Interventions for each pupil were decided on an individual, needs-led basis. This meant that students were able to benefit from more than one intervention at any one time.
