Pupil Premium is the name of the fund given directly to schools to support students who receive free school meals, who are in public care or young people whose parents are in the armed forces.
Pupil Premium supported students make up 30% of our students.
Every school is required to report on how it intends to spend Pupil Premium grant for the current academic year and how it was spent in previous years. Each school has to report the impact of the spending.
Year 7 Catch Up Funding
At Baysgarth School we have a strong sense of shared purpose in ensuring that every student in our school reaches their full potential. We have high expectations of all students and what they can achieve and we are committed as a staff to supporting students to do so.
The government provides some additional funding aimed at students who did not gain a level 4 in Reading and/or Maths at the end of KS2 to ensure schools support these students with their academic progress within school.
The school uses this funding to ensure that every student at Baysgarth school fulfills their potential and reaches the very high expectations we have for them.
