Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged students and close the gap between them and their peers.

Pupil Premium funding is paid to schools according to the number of students who have been:

  • Registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (Ever 6 FSM) (Disadvantaged Pupils)

  • Children with no recourse to public funds (as a result of Covid-19 pandemic) (NRPF) (Disadvantaged Pupils)

  • Looked after children (children in care) (Disadvantaged Pupils)

  • Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order) (Disadvantaged Pupils)

  • Children of armed service personnel (Service Children)


In the 2021-2022 financial year, Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form will receive:

  • £955 for each eligible secondary-aged student

  • £310 for children of armed services personnel

  • £2,345 for looked after children (LAC) (defined in Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority)

  • £2,345 for children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order


How many students at Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form are eligible for the Pupil Premium?

Currently 220 students are eligible for the Pupil Premium.

How will the impact of the spending of the Pupil Premium be measured?

To monitor progress on attainment, measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of students covered by the Pupil Premium. At Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form, the usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring and tracking of the cohort’s attainment will be used to inform student progress, enabling early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention.
