Pupil Premium (including Catch Up Funding)

Pupil Premium

At Kingswinford Academy, all members of staff, including LAB members, accept the responsibility of ensuring that Pupil Premium Grant is used effectively to support the progress of and narrow the achievement gap for those students who qualify for this funding.



The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to children from low-income families who are, or have been, eligible for free school meals (FSM), children of service personnel and children who have been looked-after (LAC).

The objective of our spending of Pupil Premium funding is to improve the attainment and progress of students eligible for the Pupil Premium, relative to those students that are not eligible (both in-school and nationally). We have used research compiled by the ‘Education Endowment Foundation’ to best steer our approach and budget allocation (the best results come from promoting metacognition, improving feedback and utilising pastoral interventions).

No student, regardless of their socio-economic background, should be denied the right to maximise their potential. We aim to use the Pupil Premium funding to remove barriers – to raise the aspirations and achievement of, and the opportunities for disadvantaged students.
