Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure


• Introduced in April 2011, the Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that provides additional funding aimed at pupils from deprived

backgrounds. Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non‚Äźdeprived peers.

• The Pupil Premium is provided in order to support these pupils in reaching their potential by accelerating their progress. The

Government has used pupils entitled to Free School Meals and those who are Looked After as an indicator for deprivation.

• They have given a fixed amount of money to schools per pupil, based on the number of pupils registered for Free School Meals and

who are looked after by the local authority. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the

armed forces.

• This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.


Our Key aims:

• Our core aim is to raise the attainment and progress of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding so that their performance compares

favourably with Non-Pupil Premium peers. It is important to state that we do not only measure progress in relation to academic

success, but in relation to both social and emotional development as well as against a pupil’s effort and engagement in their

education. Barriers to attainment for our pupils are complex due to their social, emotional and mental health needs. Poor attendance,

breakdown of family relationships, cultural, social, financial concerns and health issues are all factors that impact upon our pupil’s

ability to engage in their learning.

• At IMPACT Sefton Secondary PRU we judge our progress from point of entry; we use previous information as well as baseline assessment to generate this judgement. We are confident that we provide every pupil with a personalised opportunity to become the best version of

themselves and address inequalities in the education of pupils from low-income families.
