Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium Funding

Tregolls was crowned South West Champion at the 2017 Pupil Premium Awards.

What is Pupil premium?

You may have heard of funding called the ‘Pupil Premium’. This is money delagated from the central Government to schools, based on a number of measures. These measures include eligibility for Free School Meals in the last 6 years, children whose parents are in the Armed Forces and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.

How do we compare nationally?

The national figure for pupils eligible for pupil premium per school is on average 22.6%, our school context is on average that 48% of our children are currently eligible for pupil premium.

At our school, we spend our pupil premium funding, on ensuring that EVERY child makes at least expected or better progress. We monitor targeted intervention closely, ensuring that they are effective and that pupils make the additional progress they need (if required) to make in order to catch up with pupils who are deemed not to be disadvantaged. This year alone we have supported pupils in following their dreams to achieve, including one pupil being selected for a scholarship at the prestigious Royal Ballet School in London, one pupil is now the current British Judo School’s champion and another European Bronze medallist. None of this would have been possible if it was not for the pupil premium funding support.
