Pupil Premium 

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who were known to be eligible for free school meals, and children who had been looked after continuously for more than six months. Eligibility for the Pupil Premium is now extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever6 Free School Meals measure).

A higher rate of funding is allocated for Pupil Premium + (LAC, SGO, CAO, or adopted from care).

A lower rate of funding is allocated for Service children.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, they are accountable for how they use the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and the other target groups. The intention at Arnold Academy is to close the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.

You can also see specific information about how we spent our Pupil Premium in the last year  .

 

In addition to Pupil Premium, we receive 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.  This is how we spent our Year 7 Catch up Funding in 2018-2019 .

 

We also receive a PE and Sports Premium for enhancing our provision of sports activities. 

 

This letter to parents sets out how Pupil Premium funding will be spent from September 2018; here is a link to access the request for financial support form referred to in the letter.
