What is the Pupil Premium?
The Government introduced ‘Pupil Premium’ funding to raise achievement in schools. It is targeted at students from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as students from less deprived families. It encompasses all students who are either in care, in receipt of free school meals, Ever 6 FSM (those who have claimed free school meals in the past 6 years) or whose parents are actively serving in the Armed Forces. You can read more about Pupil Premium here.
How the Pupil Premium is spent is monitored closely, with all schools accountable for the impact of the money spent.
Why is there a Pupil Premium?
Students who have either been in care or have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in their school career have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible. In 2009-10 GCSE statistics showed that around a third of students who have been on Free School Meals in the previous six years achieved five or more A*- C grades, compared to more than two-thirds of their fellow students.
At Trinity Academy we aim for every single child to fulfil their potential and achieve their best in all areas of school life no matter what their background or previous experience in life.
