The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with students who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for children who are adopted, currently in Local Authority Care or have previously been in Local Authority Care, as well as for children of service personnel. Nationally, the statistics show that students who are eligible for the Pupil Premium do less well than their peers in external exams. The aim of this money is to try to close that attainment gap.
The documents below explain how we support our Pupil Premium students at Highworth Warneford School, and outline our Strategic Aims Action Plan for how the money has been allocated.
Our allocation for 2019/20 is £117,390 (+ £18,400 LAC).
