Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that targets extra money at students from deprived backgrounds. Research shows that students from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non‚Äźdeprived peers. The Premium is provided in order to support these pupils in reaching their potential. It is important to note that students who are eligible for increased Pupil Premium funding are representative of all academic abilities.

The Government has used students entitled to Free School meals as an indicator for deprivation, and have deployed a fixed amount of money to schools per students, based on the number of pupils registered for Free School meals over a rolling six-year period (“Ever 6 FSM”).

 At Chetwynde we will use the indicator of those eligible for Free School meals as well as identified vulnerable groups as our target children to ‘close the gap’ with regard to attainment.

Year 7 catch-up funding

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings, additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).
