Pupil Premium & Year 7 Catch-Up Funding

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

The funding is now based on the “Ever 6” system which means that as well as pupils who are currently on free school meals, schools receive funding for any young person who has been in receipt of free school meals in the last six years. 

The total funding provided in the Pupil Premium allocation to the Bromfords School and Sixth Form College for the financial year 2015-2016 was £224 000. 

The sum of money allocated is a large figure which reflects the significant impact that it should be having on the performance and outcomes of the young people who are targeted by the funding. We have researched the best practice on the use of Pupil Premium funding as set out by the Sutton Trust Pupil Premium Toolkit:

Year 7 Catch-up Funding

In 2013, the Government made a commitment to provide annual additional educational funding to schools for each Year 7 pupil who had not achieved Level 4 in reading and/or mathematics at Key Stage 2.

The Bromfords School and Sixth Form College received additional funding of £500 for each Year 7 pupil who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or maths at Key Stage 2. The allocation for 2015/16 was £21,000.

The document below sets out the review of spending for 2015-16 together with the planned spending of Year 7 Catch-up funding for 2016-17.
