Pupil Premium & Year 7 Catch Up
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who:
- have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’)
- have been looked after continuously for more than six months (LAC)
- are children of service personnel
For every child registered at Farnham Heath End School the school receives £935 per academic year.
Farnham Heath End School has ensured that students receive the funding they are entitled to by encouraging parents to apply for the grants if they are eligible during school transition. The introduction of cashless tills in the school canteen has also removed any stigma associated with FSM students.
Pupil Premium Pledge
- We believe that every disadvantaged student should achieve and progress at their highest levels with high standards of teaching and learning as the school focus.
- We aim to raise the aspirations of all disadvantaged students by encouraging students to believe in their potential to achieve.
- We believe that each disadvantaged student's cultural capital should be developed by removing socio-economic barriers.
The WMAT internal Pupil Premium review took place on the 7th March 2018 by Mr Daryl Morgan the Head Teacher of the Ridgeway School. The next Pupil Premium review will be completed March 2019.
