Pupil Premium Funding

The pupil premium is a government initiative designed to target resources for those pupils considered to be from a disadvantaged background. The Pupil Premium money is provided to schools and academies for pupils aged 11 – 16 who fall into one or more of the categories listed below:

  • Pupils who have been entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever 6 FSM).
  • Pupils looked after by local authorities, referred to as looked-after children (LAC).
  • Pupils previously looked after by a local authority or other state care, referred to as previously looked-after children (PLAC).
  • Pupils who have a parent in the armed services or have had a parent/s in the armed services for the last six years.

The Government provides £1,035 per child or £2,530 per LAC or PLAC child.

Neither the government nor any government agencies have dictated how the Pupil Premium money should be spent, and clearly state that this is not a personal budget for individual pupils.  What is clear is that the money should be used to promote strategies, which narrow the attainment and progress gaps between those pupils in receipt of the pupil premium fund and those pupils who are not.

If you feel that your own child may be eligible for Free School Meals or falls into one of the categories listed above and is not in receipt of the pupil premium fund, please complete the online application: Free school meals – Wakefield Council

If you require support with your application, please contact the school and we will support you with how to apply for this funding.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
