PUPIL PREMIUM INFORMATION
Pupil Premium funding is a government initiative designed to target resources to those pupils deemed to be from a disadvantaged background. Specifically, the Pupil Premium money is for those pupils who have been on Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever 6 FSM). From April 2021, Pupil Premium allocations will be calculated based on the number of eligible pupils recorded by schools in October 2020. The Pupil Premium funding has a value of £955 per eligible pupil in secondary education.
Ursuline College also receives £310 for every pupil with a parent who:
- is serving in HM Forces
- has retired on a pension from the Ministry of Defence
This funding is to help with pastoral support.
Pupil Premium is used to promote strategies which narrow the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils, and enable eligible pupils to thrive, particularly if they demonstrate high ability. More information on how the school do this can be found in the documentation below:
