Pupil Premium Grants

Pupil Premium is additional funding, from the Government, provided to schools for supporting more pupils from low income families to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils for whom they are responsible.

Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as Ever 6 free school meals £1,320

Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 6 service child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence £300

Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying school’s budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.

At Hope Wood Academy, a large proportion of children are eligible for the Pupil Premium.

All our staff and governors accept responsibility for ‘socially disadvantaged’ pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within a caring environment.

The targeted and strategic use of Pupil premium will support us in achieving our vision.

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement, including pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and the children of armed service personnel.
