In 2011 the Government announced the introduction of Pupil Premium funding to support policies directed at disadvantaged pupils. This additional funding is provided to: 

  • Raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap with their peers. 
  • Support children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces. 

For the academic year 2022-23 the grants received per pupil are as follows: 

Pupil eligibility criteria Amount of funding for each secondary-aged pupil per year Funding is paid to 
Pupils who are eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible in the past 6 years £985 School 
Pupils who have been adopted from care or have left care £2,410 School 
Children who are looked after by the local authority £2,410 Local Authority 

At Prenton High School for Girls we aim to raise the attainment, progress and aspirations of disadvantaged students by providing: 

  • High quality personalised teaching and learning that meets the needs of all students, including Pupil Premium students 
  • Personalised intervention for students who need additional support in identified areas 
  • A wide range of enrichment opportunities that enable Pupil Premium students to take part in different activities they may not have had the chance to experience before.
