‘Each week I go to the Library to pick a new Accelerated Reading book. When I have read my book I can do the computer test to find out how much of the book I have understood. My reading is getting better and I am enjoying books more.’ Year 8 student.
Pupil Premium is funding that a school receives in addition to the main funding. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM), children in Care (CLA) and children from service families (CSF), and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
How much does the school get?
For the financial year 2015-16, the allocation for The North School is £315,000
How the Pupil Premium will be spent.
This funding is used to provide a range of interventions across the school to support the progress of students at the school for whom the school receives Pupil Premium Funding.
A list of these interventions can be found in the school’s Pupil Premium Report 2015-2016
