Pupil Premium

Across the country, students who are eligible for free school meals have, on average, lower levels of achievement. 

Humberston Academy seeks to address this inequality issue by implementing strategies and providing opportunities which are motivational and impact on achievement.

The government provides academies and schools with additional funding to help reduce inequalities and gaps in attainment between those students who are disadvantaged and their peers. This funding is called the Pupil Premium.

Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

Every academy and school can select how they choose to use their Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for students.  Every school needs to be held accountable for how this money is spent, which is why we make details of how Humberston Academy uses it, available on our website.

This report also details the amount received for 2015/16 and how we plan to use the funding for 2016/17.
