What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated by the Department for Education to schools on the basis of the numbers of children entitled to and registered for free school meals (FSM) at any point within the last six years and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.  The expectation is that this additional funding will be used to support Pupil Premium eligible students and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

How is the Pupil Premium being used by Formby High School?


Year 7 Catch-Up Premium

Formby High School’s Year 7 catch-up programme is designed to provide sustained, long-term improvement in attainment through early identification and tailored intervention.
