Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding the school receives for students who are:

  • Eligible for an in receipt of Free School Meals, or have been in the last 6 years
  • Looked after children
  • Children of members of HM Armed Forces

In 2014/15 the school received funding is £226,086

In 2015/16 the school received funding of £209,908

In 2016/17 the school received funding of £218,738

For 2017/18, the school receives funding of approx. £220,000

As at September 2017, the Wey Valley School had 228 students on role in receipt of Pupil Premium funds.

Purpose of Pupil Premium

There is a significant difference in the achievement of students who are eligible for Pupil Premium support and those who are not. The additional funding allows the school to put in place strategies and resources which are designed to reduce this achievement gap.  Approximately 60% of Pupil Premium funds are spent on academic support and resources with the balance of 40% spent on pastoral and wrap around care.

How Pupil Premium is being used

The key focus for Pupil Premium strategies are student progress and attendance.  Intervention support is provided in English and Maths to accelerate student progress and narrow the attainment gap and pastoral staff within the Thrive team, with support from external agencies provide wrap around support for our students. 

The Pupil Premium review report for 2016/17 will appear on this page shortly, following a review by school leaders and governors.
