About Pupil Premium
The government believes that the pupil premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) or that have received free school meals at any time in the last 6 years (Ever 6) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Schools also receive funding (Pupil Premium Plus) for children who are looked after, adopted from care or are in special guardianship.
There is also a Service Pupil Premium to support pupils with a parent in HM Forces.
Pupil Premium Funding at Clare Mount
We currently have 104 students eligible for Pupil Premium funding and 15 students who receive Pupil Premium Plus funding. The percentage of disadvantaged students overall is 61%. At Clare Mount, our PP students generally achieve as well as, if not better than, their non-PP peers. However, we continue to monitor the groups carefully and when necessary additional intervention strategies are put in place.
With the addition of the Pupil Premium Grant, Clare Mount Specialist Sports College has been able to improve provision for disadvantaged pupils in a variety of ways including;
Provision of additional English and Maths teachers
Employment of two Learning Mentors to provide targeted social, emotional and motivational support
Increased opportunities for disadvantaged students through funding trips, visits and enrichment opportunities helping to further engage and enthuse these students
Additional trips to local colleges which help with transition and to raise aspirations.
Targeted Teaching Assistant support to enhance PP / PP+ life chances.
All these additions have been of great benefit to our students who have as a direct result grown in confidence and resilience.
