The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 to provide additional funding to support children who are looked after and those from low income families, including those eligible for Free School Meals. Interventions should have a positive, meaningful impact. It is important to be able to track the spending of the additional funding and also to be in a position to evaluate the effectiveness of measures that have been put in place regarding the improvement of outcomes. We encourage eligible parents to register their child as eligible for Free School Meals so that the maximum Pupil Premium entitlement is correctly allocated. The Pupil Premium, funding for which is additional to main school funding, is a crucial way of addressing inequalities by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most. Wardle Academy aims to maximise the achievement of vulnerable students in our care.
