The Pupil Premium Grant

The Pupil Premium grant was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures. The Pupil Premium grant is in addition to main school funding and it will be used by Kingsford Community School to address any underlying inequalities between children who need it the most. The money we receive as part of the Pupil Premium grant is not linked to prior attainment of students who enter the school. They may be anywhere on the spectrum from our most able to most challenged students. Pupils eligible to receive this funding are in at least one of the following groups:

  • Those who have been entitled to Free School Meals during the last six years (FMSE6)
  • Those who are in care or looked after (CLA)

Kingsford Community School received additional funding based on the number of disadvantaged pupils at our school who were eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years, as outlined below. The intended outcome of this funding is to close any gaps in progress and attainment between disadvantaged pupils and other pupils which is a national key focus for schools.

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Grant:

The Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up grant is provided for students leaving primary without reaching a Key Stage 2 scaled score of 100 in English and/or Maths. The school received this grant in addition to the Pupil Premium grant. This additional funding enables secondary schools to provide catch-up classes to narrow the gap between the lowest achieving Year 7 students and their peers.
