Pupil Premium statement
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and ensure that they make the best progress possible. The amount of Pupil Premium funding allocated to a school is determined by the number of students receiving free school meals and the number of students in care.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium funding is spent. This allows schools to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students based upon their specific needs. This may vary from year to year.
The strategy for 2020 – 2021 provides the action plan for further improving the standards and achievements of students eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant.
Parents are strongly encouraged to register children for Free School Meals who are eligible for the provision. Details explaining how to register are available here.
Covid-19 catch up premium
The Covid-19 catch up premium is one-off funding provided by the government to schools for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. It aims to support pupils to catch up for lost learning so schools can meet the curriculum expectations for the next academic year.
It is up to schools to decide how to use the funding and schools are expected to publish the plan for how the funding will be used on their website. The Oathall catch up funding expenditure plan is available here.
