Funding and Impact - Pupil Premium and Year 7 catch up

West Lancashire Community High School receives the following funding to support pupils in school:

1. Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium is funding that schools receive that is in in addition to the school budget. The funding is to support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils with the aim of closing the gap between themselves and their peers.

Schools are free to decide how to manage this funding. Pupil Premium is not an individual budget allocated to a family for their child’s education. The Governing Body makes the decision on how Pupil Premium should be targeted to ensure efficient and effective outcomes for children who are eligible

Schools must publish details on how the funding allocation:

  • will be spent for the current year
  • was spent in the previous academic year
  • has made a difference to the attainment of disadvantaged pupils

Secondary schools receive pupil premium funding for each child from Year 7 to Year 11.

West Lancashire Community High School’s objectives for pupil premium funding to support :

  • Social and emotional development and maturity of pupils

  • Every pupil engaging with books by ‘reading for pleasure’ within every department

  • Welfare of pupils which includes their personal development, behaviour and  attendance

  • Extended learning- ‘Beyond the curriculum’

  • Staffing interventions to support individual pupil needs
