Pupil Premium and Catch Up Premium

The Pupil Premium Strategy is a government funded strategy to narrow the achievement gap between pupils identified as being from a disadvantaged background and the rest of the students. Schools receive Pupil Premium funding for those pupils who have been on Free School Meals at any point over the past 6 years and children who have been looked after or fostered at any point.

For the year 2017/2018, the Pupil Premium has a value of £935 for Free School Meals students and £1900 for looked after children. The Government leaves it to the school to decide how the Pupil Premium money can be best used in order to narrow the attainment gap between Pupil Premium students and the rest of the students.

Results in 2017 followed a continuing trend of a narrowing of the gap in achievement between Pupil Premium students and other students.  The Progress 8 figures for Pupil Premium students at Prince Henry’s in 2016 and 2017 indicate that they are making better progress than all students nationally.

The Catch-up Premium is a government funded strategy to support students in Year 7 who have achieved scores of less than 100 in reading and/or maths at KS2 in catching up with their peers.

For the year 2017/2018 the school received £500 in funding for each student. There were 30 students in total. The school will receive the same sum for the year 2018/19.

Tracking data in 2016/17 showed that Catch Up Premium students averaged 95% on track to achieve their personalised targets compared to 91.3 % of other students.
