Pupil Premium Funding

The aim of the Pupil Premium Grant is to support schools in raising the achievement of their most disadvantaged pupils. More specifically, it is hoped that these pupils will benefit from increased social mobility and have improved chances of accessing higher education. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium Grant as they see fit.

National research shows that children who 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. It is also worth noting that many pupils claiming Free School Meals – and those who are looked after – at Carew Academy already fall into other groups, i.e. SEN that are vulnerable to underachievement. It is, therefore, pertinent for the school to consider additional strategies when planning effective intervention to maximise the impact of this funding for Pupil Premium Grant pupils.

The Pupil Premium Grant is paid to schools by Local Authorities and to Academies via the ESFA (Education Skills Funding Agency). The funding is calculated using the January School Census and Looked After Children Data Returns.
