Publicly-funded schools in England get extra funding (Pupil Premium) from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.
Publicly-funded schools in England get extra funding from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.
Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds:
- generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school
- often do not perform as well as their peers
The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.
Use of the pupil premium
At Leigh Academy Bexley we used a tiered approach to Pupil Premium spending in line with the Education Endowment Foundation’s (EEF) pupil premium guide, targeting spending across the following three areas
Arranging training and professional development for all staff to improve the impact of teaching and learning for pupils.
Securing support, interventions and extra help supporting pupils to succeed
A strong pastoral system, alongside bespoke support for groups of students and individuals
