Pupil Premium and Catch Up Funding

The school is committed to closing any achievement gaps.


What is the pupil premium?

The pupil premium is extra money for schools provided directly by the Department for Education (DfE) to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities achieve their full potential.  The amount of pupil premium funding schools receive is decided by how many disadvantaged pupils they have – schools then receive funding per pupil premium-eligible child. We receive this allocation for students across the full ability range.

At South Chingford Foundation School, we ensure that we follow the updated guidance from the DfE regarding how we both plan and spend our pupil premium grant monies. This money is spent in ways that we believe will have the most impact on our students.  Except for students who are in care, this money is not linked to any individual child. 

How do we spend our pupil premium allocation?

How the pupil premium is spent is monitored closely by the DFE with all schools accountable for the impact of the money spent.  A detailed review of our strategy and how we spend our allocation is provided in the Strategy plan.
