Pupil Premium

Pupil PremiumThe Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. In 2012–13 schools were allocated a total of £1.25 billion funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

From April 2012 the Pupil Premium was extended to include children who had been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (FSM 'Ever 6').

The level of premium for 2017-18 is £1320 per pupil eligible for free school meals (FSM).

From April 2014 children who are looked after will attract a higher rate of funding than children from low-income families - the ‘pupil premium plus’, which will be £1,900 per pupil for 2017-18. This is to reflect the unique challenges they face at school where they often struggle to keep up with their peers at both primary and secondary level.

Hammond Academy reviews its strategies at the end of each academic year to ensure expenditure has impacted chosen strategies of spending for the current year. The strategies chosen for the forthcoming year will coincide with eligibility and our school improvement plan, along with the outcomes from monitoring progress and attainment.
