The pupil premium grant is funding provided to schools to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged children and their peers. The grant is based upon data from the previous January’s census. However, spending plans for the pupil premium funding are in line with the school year (September to September).
The grant can be spent as each school sees fit, as long as it is used to improve the attainment of eligible pupils. Schools do not need to spend an equal amount on each pupil, or use the money for interventions that benefit only eligible pupils.
This year's Pupil Premium Impact Plan is below for the academic year 2021/22 although it is a three year plan.
This year we aim to share the impact our plan is having on the children at St. Cuthbert's.
Please feel free to explore.
We evaluate the impact throughout the year.
