Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding & Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch up funding
Pupil Premium funding is allocated to publicly funded schools in England to enable them to provide additional support their disadvantaged pupils, close the attainment gap between them and their peers and to ensure pupil premium students make progress in line with other, non-pupil premium students nationally. There are 3 categories of children that attract additional funding;

  • Ever 6 Free School Meals – Students in Years 7-11 that receive of have received free school meals in the past 6 years.
  • Adopted from care (Adopted) & Looked After Children (CLA) Students in Years 7-11 that are in local authority care, have been adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 and children who have left care under a Special Guardianship Order, Child Arrangement Order or Residence Order.
  • Service Children Students in Year 7-11 with a parent or parents who are either; currently serving in the armed forces or have served in the last 6 years.  This premium is also available for students that are in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.

At Settlebeck we use this money to fund a range of strategies to support our students such as providing one-to-one support, especially for literacy, to provide in-class support, attendance support and family support, and to ensure that these students have access to all the opportunities we offer, for example trips abroad, music lessons etc.

We will always work with every one of our students to ensure they can play a full part in the life of our great little school, and that they achieve everything that they are capable of, and perhaps more than they believed they could. Every student here really does matter to us.

The Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium grant is paid under Section 14 of the Education Act 2002. In accordance with this act the school receives additional catch up funding of £500 for each pupil whose level of attainment in reading and/or maths at key stage 2 is a barrier to future progress. This funding aims to help those pupils to ‘catch up’ with their peers during their first year in secondary school.
