The pupil premium grant is allocated to schools in order to improve the attainment of students registered for free school meals, those in local authority care and those with parents in the armed forces. The grant was put in place due to a nationwide gap in attainment between these students and their peers.
At Queensmead, we have followed the recommendations by the Education Endowment Foundation to underpin our pupil premium strategy, before tailoring the initiatives to our school context and the students here at Queensmead. For the 2019/20 academic year, Queensmead school will receive approximately £291,000 in pupil premium funding.
