The Pupil Premium is grant funding and is in addition to the School’s Delegated Budget. It was established by the government to address inequalities between pupils. It is allocated according to the number of children on roll who are eligible for free school meals at any time in the last six years, who have been Looked After for more than six months, who are adopted or who have a parent in one of the armed forces. It is up to the school to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent. Pupil Premium funding is used to raise attainment as well as promoting social skills, independent learning and positive behaviour.
At Westwood Academy, we believe that no matter what their background, every child should be supported to succeed and use the Pupil Premium funding to achieve this.
