What is Pupil Premium?


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 as well as addressing any attendance issues.

Barwell C of E Academy also recognises the emotional and social needs of some of these children. To that end, we also provide mental health and emotional support services as well as providing other enriching experiences.
