Pupil Premium

The Government provides extra funding for students who are eligible for free school meals or Looked After children.  This group has been identified by the Government because research shows that nationally, students in these categories do significantly less well than other similar students. The funding is designed to help bridge the gap.  At Castle we are proud that we already have excellent personalised provision in place and look forward to the opportunity to further enhance and extend this provision through the use of this funding.

This additional funding is called Pupil Premium and is ring fenced from the school’s general budget.  It sits as a separate budget allocated on the basis of the number of students who qualify for Pupil Premium assistance.  

We are currently finalising both our Pupil Premium Plan for 2018/19 and our evaluation of last year's Pupil Premium Plan.  Both will be published to the website by early October at the latest, as will up-to-date details of this year's financial allocation..
