Pupil Premium

Student View

‘Each week I go to the Library to pick a new Accelerated Reading book. When I have read my book I can do the computer test to find out how much of the book I have understood. My reading is getting better and I am enjoying books more.’  Year 8 student.

Overview

Pupil Premium is Government funding that a school receives in addition to its main funding. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is a way to address the current inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (EFSM), children in Care (CLA) and children from service families (CSF), and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. This funding is used to provide a range of interventions across the school to support the progress of students at the school for whom the school receives Pupil Premium Funding.

The school Governors annually approve a Pupil Premium Policy.

 

How much does the school get?

For the financial year 2017-18, the allocation for The North School is £276,550.

The funding is made up of 290 EFSM pupils funded at £935 each and 18 Service pupils funded at £300. At the start of the year there were no CLA pupils either from Kent or other local authorities.

How the Pupil Premium will be spent.

The attached document shows how the Pupil Premium funding was to be spent in the last academic year.
