Pupil Premium funding was introduced in 2011 in response to evidence that those who are or have been eligible for Free School Meals have consistently lower attainment than those who have never been eligible for Free School Meals. Funding is also allocated to Looked After Children (LAC) and services children. Whilst schools can individually determine how this funding is spent, in accordance with each eligible child’s needs, they are held accountable for the achievement of disadvantaged pupils through Ofsted inspections and performance tables.
How we use pupil premium to raise achievement at QEHC
Schools are accountable for how they use the additional pupil premium funding to support pupils from low-income families and the other target groups. QEHC has closely analysed both national research and local knowledge about what makes the biggest difference in narrowing the attainment gap between pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium and all pupils nationally.
The initiatives in the link below demonstrate how QEHC has used our Pupil Premium funding to maximise achievement and how we plan to use the funds this year. In 2015-16 the school received funding of £71,147 which was based on a Pupil Premium cohort of 63 students 17% of the whole school. For the current year 2016-17 we will receive £61,824, based on a cohort of 62 students, 19% of the whole school.

Catch-up Literacy and Numeracy Funding
The Year 7 Catch-Up Premium is a stream of funding that a school receives in addition to core funding. The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve an standardised score of 100 ( prior to 2015/16 intake a Level 4) in reading and/or maths at the end of key stage 2 i.e. at the end of their Primary school.
Schools previously received an additional £500 for each pupil in their year 7 intake, who fulfils this criteria.
The SENCo on behalf of the Governing Body can decide how that funding is spend and is accountable for ensuring it has maximum impact.
