Pupil Premium

Use of Pupil Premium Grant in 2015/16 and plans for 2016/17

St Michael’s CE High School was allocated a Pupil Premium Grant of £75,174 in 2015/16.

The purpose of this grant is to close the disadvantage gap by addressing inequalities and raising the attainment of those students in low income families and service families.

Our priority is to use these funds to target additional support strategies which should result in every student, however financially disadvantaged, being able to improve their levels of attainment and progress.

Students eligible for Pupil Premium are:

  • Free School Meal students (FSM)
  • Looked After Children (LAC)
  • Adopted children or those under special guardianship
  • Military Service Children (children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.)

This includes ‘Ever 6,’ meaning students who have been eligible for these at any time during the last six years.

Allocation of funding 2015/16

The Headteacher in consultation with the governors decides how the Pupil Premium Grant is spent for the benefit of the eligible students as well as taking into account the needs of all students in school.
