Pupil Premium is the funding that is allocated by the Government to help reduce inequalities and gaps in achievement between disadvantaged students from low income families and their peers. Schools are expected to use the funding to develop strategies that raise the aspirations, skills, progress and attainment of disadvantaged students.
The amount of Pupil Premium funding that schools receive is determined by the number of:
– students receiving free school meals (FSM) in the last six years (children from low-income families are entitled to receive free school meals)
– students who have been adopted or who are in local authority care
– students who have parents in the Armed Forces
The Hollins is fully committed to raising the aspirations and achievement of all of our students, irrespective of their social background and financial circumstances, and we therefore make effective use of our Pupil Premium funding to create greater equality of achievement between our students.
