Pupil Premium


What is it?

The pupil premium is funding provided by the government. It is intended to address the achievement gap between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and children who do not receive this funding. It is for individual schools to decide how the money is spent.  However, it must be remembered that not all Pupil Premium children are behind their peers and that some are on track or in front!

At Barwell C of E Academy, the Pupil Premium is used to ensure that all pupils reach their full potential regardless of their social situation.  We can do this through targeted interventions and working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress.

Barwell C of E Academy also recognises the emotional and social needs of those children who come from deprived backgrounds. To that end, we also provide mental health and emotional support services as well as providing other experiences.

If you have specific questions or need further advice after reading the information below, please do not hesitate to contact the Deputy Head and Pupil Premium Leader, Lisa Stewart, who can be contacted via the school office.
