Pupil Premium – what is it?

Pupil Premium (PP) funding is funding provided to schools and academies by the government for the purpose of supporting those students who meet the PP eligibility criteria.

National statistics show that students who are eligible for PP funding do less well than their peers in external exams. The aim of PP funding is to enable schools and academies to help close that attainment gap by bridging the inequality of opportunity that exists between PP students and their peers.

The use of Pupil Premium funds

The funding we receive for pupil premium is ring-fenced from the main school budget. Our Inclusion Coordinator supports the process to access funding to ensure interventions are targeted, planned and evaluated. Our Governing Body is also responsible for accounting for the impact of Pupil Premium.

At Churchill Academy & Sixth Form we are determined to make sure that our funding is spent on eligible children in the manner which best supports them. The Academy ensures that the funding is used to promote high expectations and achievement for eligible students, to allow access to educational opportunities that might otherwise be unavailable to them and to monitor their progress to ensure any further areas of support are identified and funded.
