Pupil Premium and Catch Up Funding
Pupil Premium Impact Statement
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged students of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. The extra funding is provided by the Government for each student registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years, as well as those who have ever been in care, or that have a parent in H.M. Forces. In the 2018 to 2019 financial year, North Huddersfield received £1190.30 for each eligible Pupil Premium student.
Our aim is to improve the outcomes, social capital, life chances, participation rate for this group of students, by providing them the equity to overcome the opportunity gap.
The population Of Pupil Premium students at North Huddersfield Trust School is currently around 40%. As such, the money that we spend on supporting these students needs to impact over a third of the population of our school, so the initiatives need to affect and be applicable to as many students as possible rather than being narrowly focused on only small groups of individuals (as may be the case in other schools where Pupil Premium students are less representative within the school population). Where it has been identified as necessary we do have initiatives that will single out small groups of PP students for specific intervention, but by and large the processes we have put in place have far reaching impacts and so benefit large proportions of the school.
