Pupil premium and funding

Pupil premium and catch-up funding

The government introduced pupil premium with the aim of increasing social mobility, reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally and enabling more students from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend top universities.

Catch-up premium is government funding to assist schools in providing additional support in literacy and numeracy. Each school is entitled to an additional £500 for each year 7 student who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

The impact of funding for individual students will be closely monitored and evaluated and a report will be provided at the end of each academic year. Please view our latest reports below:
