Pupil Premium and Year 7 Catch Up Funding

Free School Meals and Pupil Premium policy

At Bradon Forest we are passionate about the progress of all our students. The government has recognised a group of students who underachieve nationally compared to their peers.  The Government has, therefore, given funding to schools to support this group. The allocation for 2018/19 is £138,826 and it is likely that we will receive a similar amount in 2019/20.

Catch Up Funding

Catch Up Funding is additional funding provided to schools to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2). For the academic year 2018/19 we received £9,828 and it is likely that we will receive a similar amount in 2019/20.

At Bradon Forest we use the funding to contribute towards the cost of staff who provide small group work for these students to enable them to make accelerated progress in Year 7 and to catch up with their peers.
