Pupil Premium / Catch up Funding
In the school year 2018-19 the school received the following sums of money:
- Pupil Premium £235,620
- Year 7 catch-up £18,000
- Total 2018/19 £253,620
Pupil premium money is received by the school for any child who has been in receipt of free school meals, is a Council Looked After Child or is the child of a serving member of the armed forces. It is used to enhance these children’s educational experiences as they are deemed to be disadvantaged by circumstances out of their control.
Year 7 catch up funding is provided for any child who has not reached the expected level in Maths and/or English at the end of Primary school and is used to boost their progress in their first year of Secondary school.
Following analysis conducted throughout 2017/18 the main areas to address with this funding were the gaps between Pupil premium and non-pupil premium students in terms of:
- Academic Interventions;
- Welfare Interventions;
- Literacy Interventions.
