At Bridgnorth Endowed School, we believe that every child can achieve regardless of their background and have high expectations for all our students.
We understand that some children need more support than others and are committed to closing the achievement gap.
The Pupil Premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government, to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.
Based on research showing that children from low income families perform less well at school than their peers, this funding is intended to tackle national inequalities in educational achievement.
Each school decides how to allocate funds and details of our approach are outlined in the documents below.
Year 7 Catch Up Premium
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).
All schools must report on how this money is spent, as well as the impact of the premium to those pupils who are eligible.
