Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium grant was introduced in 2011 and is a sum of money given to schools each year by the government to improve the attainment of eligible students. 

Eligible students include those who:

  • are currently claiming Free School Meals (FSM)
  • have claimed school meals in the last six years (Ever 6)
  • are ‘In Service’ by having parents who have served in the armed forces within the last 4 years
  • are Looked After Children (LAC)

The funding is allocated to a range of strategies identified by the school to improve outcomes for Pupil Premium students. Some examples of Pupil Premium allocation are:

  • High quality teaching for all
  • A Chromebook
  • Providing the support of academic mentors
  • Providing teaching assistants in English and mathematics 
  • Setting up a staffed homework club
  • Purchasing academic materials and resources
  • Widening participation visits
  • Brilliant Club 

Sir Jonathan North will also be allocating each Pupil Premium eligible student £100 of funding to use towards educational resources and activities. If you are a parent of a Pupil Premium student you can click here to view a copy of the letter sent to you.
