The Pupil Premium is a sum of money the school receives for each student who is either in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) or who is a Looked After Child (LAC or CLA).
Nationally, the statistics show that students in receipt of Free School Meals or who are Looked After Children do less well than other students in external examinations. The aim of this money is to try and close that attainment gap.
We are required to publish how much Pupil Premium money we receive and how we have chosen to spend that money. We are also required to publish the results of students in receipt of FSM compared with their peers.
South Holderness have used the Pupil Premium funding to support the team of staff to closely monitor the progress of the pupil premium students and provide appropriate support and intervention as required.
The Inclusion Department and Progress Leader provide targeted support for the pupil premium students with emerging and unmet needs. This is coordinated through the VGM (Vulnerable Groups Meeting) who also regularly track the impact of intervention on student achievement.
