The Government provides schools and academies with a ‘pupil premium’ which is additional to main school funding.
This funding is provided to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
At Fowey River Academy, we have a pupil premium policy to explain how we have previously used this funding and how we intend to use it in the future to achieve the greatest impact on student performance.
How we spend our pupil premium includes:
- Improving ICT facilities across the academy
- English conference for students
- GCSE core subject revision materials and work packs
- Maths home learning software
In 2017/2018, for this period we received £164,000.
In 2018/2019, for this period we are due to receive £157,070
