Brook Mead Academy will have a Pupil Premium strategy which aims to overcome the barriers to educational achievement faced by our pupils. The effectiveness of this strategy will be continually evaluated, and a report of the effectiveness of the previous year’s spending will be published here each year.
What is the Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is additional funding for schools in England. It is designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers. The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is allocated to:
- Students who currently receive the Free School Meal allowance (FSM)
- Students who have received the FSM allowance in the last six years
- Students whose parents currently serve in the military
- Students who are currently in Local Authority Care
Schools are accountable for how they use Pupil Premium funding to support low-income families and other target groups. Measures have been included in the performance tables that show achievement of students who are eligible for the Pupil Premium.
How much is the Pupil Premium worth?
Secondary schools receive £935 funding for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years.
