Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium was introduced to provide additional funding to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Disadvantaged pupils are defined as those eligible for free school meals (FSMs) at some point in the last 6 years and children who have been in care for more than 6 months (LAC) or children whose parents are currently employed by the armed services.

Pupil Premium funding is used depending on the need of the pupil. It can be used to provide specialist learning programmes, reading materials, additional lessons, educational visits or any other resource that would be of value to the pupil’s learning.

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
