Pupil Premium is additional funding provided by the Government for students who fit into any of the following categories:
- students who are looked after (this now includes those previously adopted)
- students entitled to free school meals
- children of armed forces personnel
Each year Nottingham Free School will be allocated a set amount of pupil premium funding based on the numbers of students who fit into the above categories. This is not part of the general budget and we are directed to use this funding on resources/activities which raise the achievement of the identified students.
Our cohorts have the following proportion of pupil premium students:
|Cohort||Percentage of pupil premium students|
Our ambition is to engage all students in an enriching education that broadens their horizons and deepens their understanding of the world and the true value to be found in human experience. Irrespective of background, or the challenges they may face, we aim for all our students to make good progress and achieve highly in all areas of our ambitious curriculum.
Here is a summary of our school's Pupil Premium Strategy:
