The pupil premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of students registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. For the academic year 2016/2017 these students will receive £935.
In addition, students from Forces families receive £300 in the academic year 2016/2017.
Schools will also receive £1,900 for each looked-after pupil who:
- has been looked-after for 1 day or more
- was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under:
- a special guardianship order;
- a residence order.
For the academic year September 2015 to July 2016 the school received £45,210 of Pupil Premium for 44 students. For the academic year September 2016 to July 2017 the school will received approximately £62,000 for 59 students. Our school budget is approximately £2,900,000. For the academic year 2017/2018 we currently have 60 eligible students.
At Maplewell we have applied the well-recognised research of The Education Endowment Foundation and our knowledge and experience of students with a range of moderate learning difficulties to create a package of approaches aimed at boosting the progress and achievement of all our students. With a particular view to addressing the barriers to educational achievement for our pupil premium students, we have applied strategies to utilise this funding to have the best possible impact. The strategies we have explored and implemented cross a wide range of approaches and have been used creatively to meet the needs of the individual.
If you think that your child/children might qualify for the Pupil Premium please get in touch with us and we can support you in filling out any forms. It will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.
