Pupil Premium and Catch up Premium

Pupil Premium is an additional grant given to students who:

  • have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years (£935)
  • have been in care for more than six months (£1900)
  • have parents/carers in the armed services, who face particular challenges (£300)

The Government believes that Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between the above groups of students and their peers by ensuring that funding reaches those pupils who need it most.

‘The pupil premium for disadvantaged pupils provides additional funding specifically linked to disadvantaged pupils, with the primary objective of boosting their attainment…’

At Minsthorpe Community College we have refined the way in which we use Pupil Premium funding to develop a strategic, targeted intervention system which is designed to support each individual student to achieve their potential. Our staff invest in a core vision to ‘diminish the difference’, in order that all students can succeed and be proud of their achievements.

Our Pupil Premium Plan details our key strategies to support disadvantaged students and the cost of these. However our whole College intervention strategies exceed by far the total amount we receive for the Pupil Premium.

Catch up Premium

The College also receives literacy and numeracy catch-up premium to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2.

The funding enables the school to deliver additional support, for those pupils that most need it, so that they catch up with their peers.

Minsthorpe Community College aims to support students to catch up by offering quality first teaching alongside individual and small group catch up sessions designed to benefit every student.

Students who receive a KS2 scaled score of below 100 in, spelling punctuation and grammar, maths or both are supported by catch-up premium provision.
