The Pupil Premium is a funding stream allocated to schools on the basis of the number of pupils who have been eligible for Free School Meals in the last six years of their education. It also includes any ‘looked after children’ and students who have parents in the Armed Forces. The amount received by the school depends on the number of children whose parents register to receive FSM or come under the above categories. Schools decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
All members of staff, governors and teaching assistants accept responsibility for ‘socially disadvantaged’ students and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within the school environment.
Bexhill Academy is committed to ‘closing the gap’ for vulnerable students and the Pupil Premium will form a vital part of that process. Provision will be made through:
- Facilitating students’ access to education
- Facilitating students’ access to the curriculum
- Alternative support and intervention within the school environment
- Facilitating student access to enrichment activities to support learning
