Pupil premium arrangements
Introduced in 2011, the pupil premium is allocated to academies to improve outcomes for students who have ever been eligible for free school meals within the previous six years (FSMEver6), students whose parents are serving members of the armed forces and those students in local authority care.
The following table shows the percentage of each year group eligible for the pupil premium payment.
|Year Group||No of Students||Number PP||PP as % of Year Group|
The academy has identified three barriers to achievement that have historically hindered the progress and attainment of this group:
- Poor attendance
- Gaps in basic skills for core subjects (Numeracy/Literacy/Science)
- Low aspirations and limited access to basic resources and facilities
