Pupil premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils in order to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children. There are three categories of children that qualify for the Pupil Premium: Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM); Looked after children; Armed Forces children.

Whitecliffe Academy has received a pupil premium grant allocation of £71,280 during the 2018-19 academic year. At the time, 48 children were eligible for pupil premium deprivation funding. Currently, 51% of our children are classed as pupil premium (November 2018).
Analysis of disadvantaged pupils’ attainment last year has been used to determine focussed areas for improvement and allocation of pupil premium funding.
