Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is additional funding provided by the Department of Education to enhance the education of students who have been entitled to Free School Meals over the past six years, Looked After Children and those whose parents are in the Armed Forces.

At Ormiston SWB Academy, the achievement of all of our students is at the core of everything that we do, but this funding enables us to further enhance the quality of experience for students both in and beyond the classroom.

It is important to note that the money, although not ‘ring fenced ‘ to a specific child, allows us to provide an integrated approach to benefit the learning of every Pupil Premium student.

Year 7 Catch-up Funding

The Year 7 Catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support Year 7 students who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of Key Stage 2.
