Pupil & Catch-up Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is non-ring fenced funding that schools receive to help support the learning and progress of pupils on free school meals (FSM) or pupils classed as a child looked after (CLA).  It should be noted that we also receive additional funding for our service pupils.  This is Pupil Premium (Service).  The College receives £200 per pupil. 

Aims and objectives

To close the disadvantaged attainment gap by providing additional targeted resources for those students who are in low-income and Service families.

Success Criteria

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
