Pupil Premium and Year 7 Catch up
The Pupil Premium is allocated to students from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings at any point in the last 6 years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure), and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However as a school we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support students from low-income families.
From September 2012, we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive.
