Pupil Premium Allocations

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It was allocated to children from low income families who were known to be eligible for free school meals,vchildren who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months, and other target groups.

Funding per eligible pupil currently stands at £935 and Hope Academy is forecasting overall pupil premium funding of £306,680 for the 2016/17 financial year. An analysis of the planned spend of the funding allocation is shown below:

Nationally children from low income families often do not progress in their education as quickly as other groups. The funding is spent on a number of initiatives to ensure that these students are able to make the same excellent progress as the rest of their peers.

It is up to schools to decide how they spend the pupil premium. However, we have a responsibility as to how this funding is used to support the educational progress of the target groups.

Owing to the importance of this area you will notice that the Academy spends more on this allocation than the specific targeted funding.
