The Becket School is strongly committed to ensuring that our most disadvantaged students are given the support to allow them to be successful. The following statement summarises and outlines the plans we have put in place to ensure that pupil premium students are given the best possible support.
What is the Pupil Premium?
Pupil premium was introduced in April, 2011 to close the gap between FSM (Free School Meals) and Non FSM pupils. It 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.
As a school, we are free to spend the Pupil Premium as we see fit but we are accountable for how we use the additional funding. New measures have been included in the performance tables to highlight the attainment and progress of pupils entitled to the Pupil Premium. The allocation for previous and current years can be found in the reports below although we have allocated slightly more from the main school budget to supplement this.
