Ernulf Academy Pupil Premium and Catch-up Provision:
An explanation of our income and intended expenditure
The Pupil Premium is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most. The Pupil Premium has a number of wider aims:
- To increase social mobility
- To enable more students from disadvantaged backgrounds to get to the top universities
- To reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally
The funding is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with children from Reception to Year 11 who have been eligible for free school meals at any time in the last six years (FSM6), are looked after (CLA) or have parents currently in the Armed Forces.
The Catch-up Premium is paid for all students who did not achieve level 4 at the end of Key Stage 2 (on leaving primary school) in reading and/or Mathematics.
For 2015-16, Ernulf Academy’s anticipated total Pupil Premium allocation was £157,847.50 and anticipated Catch-up funding was £9000. Please see 2015-16 Income Costs and Budget Planning, Expenditure Review, Action Plan and Review and Analysis of Intervention Impact.
For 2016-17, the Academy's anticipated total Pupil Premium allocation is £162,055.00 and anticipated Catch-up funding £9000. Income Costs and Budget Planning and Action Plan 2016-19 documents are available.
Our vision goes well beyond simply narrowing the gap between those who are deemed economically advantaged and those who are not.
We aim to enhance and enrich the lives of children and young people by enabling them to make the most of outstanding learning opportunities within and beyond the curriculum. We strive to instil an appreciation that there are no limits to what can be achieved and develop the attributes needed to successfully shape and respond to the future. This is in line with the Core Purpose of the St Neots Learning Partnership: to secure the best possible experience, learning and outcomes for each young person for whom we have responsibility.
