Pupil Premium & Other Funding

Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged students of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

The impact and spending strategy for pupil premium funding is reviewed at every Academy Council/ Improvement Board meeting.  The annual review is published on the academy’s website in September each year.

Disadvantaged criteria are:

  • Pupils who have registered for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years
  • Pupils who are looked after by the local authority for more than six months
  • Pupils whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces

The level of pupil premium in 2023-2024 is £1035 per pupil.

Total pupil premium funding for the current year is £607,062

Additional Funding (Recovery Premium)

For the 2023-2024 there are several additional funding streams provided to schools to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus, to help pupils catch up on lost learning and tackle the attainment gap. These funds need to be ring-fenced by finance leaders and only used for approved activities.

As with all government funding, school leaders and governors must be able to account for how the money is being used. Therefore, the impact and spending strategy for this additional funding will be reviewed regularly throughout the 2023-2024 academic year.

Total recovery premium funding for current year is £159,152
