The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is additional funding schools have received based on the number of pupils who have ever been eligible for Free School Meals in the last 6 years.

At Cheetwood Pupil Premium has been used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement.

The funding has also been used to diminish the difference between the achievements of different groups of pupils.

We are required by law to publish on our website a report summarising what we have spent the Pupil Premium on and the difference it has made.

We are also required by law to publish on our website our strategy for the school’s use of the pupil premium grant.

This strategy summarises:

• the school’s pupil premium grant allocation amount
• the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at Cheetwood
• how we intend to spend the pupil premium to address those barriers and the reasons for that approach
• how we will measure the impact
