Pupil Premium and Year 7 Catch Up Funding

Free School Meals and Pupil Premium policy

At Bradon Forest we are passionate about the progress of all our students. The government has recognised a group of students who underachieve nationally compared to their peers.  The Government has, therefore, given funding to schools to support this group. The allocation for 2018/19 is £124,365.

Your child may be a part of this group if:

  • they have been eligible for Free School Meals at some point in the last six years,
  • they are in Local Authority Care or
  • you are serving in the Armed Forces.

If you believe you may be eligible for Pupil Premium Funding fill in the application on the school’s learning gateway. www.schoolgateway.com

Catch Up Funding

Catch Up Funding is additional funding provided to schools to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). For the academic year 2017/18 we received £10,182 and it is likely that we will receive a similar amount in 2018/19.

At Bradon Forest we use the funding to contribute towards the cost of staff who provide small group work for these students to enable them to make accelerated progress in Year 7 and to catch up with their peers.

More detail can be found in our Support and Intervention Statement.
