At Chantry Middle School, and within the Three Rivers Learning Trust, we view the needs of all students as important and strive to create the best opportunities and experiences for all.
Nationally, statistics show a gap between the attainment and progress of some groups of pupils including those in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers. The Pupil Premium is a sum of money that the school receives to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential and to support pupils with parents in the regular armed forces.
We receive funding for:
- Pupils who have been in receipt of Free School Meals any time over the past six years
- Looked after children defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority
- Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order
- Children whose parent(s) are in the regular armed services or they have been registered as a ‘service child’ in the school census at any point since 2011 or the pupil receives a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme or the War Pensions Scheme
We are required to publish how much Pupil Premium money we receive and how we have chosen to spend that money. We are also required to publish the results for Pupil Premium students compared with their peers.
In the academic year 2016/17, we received £110,310 in Pupil Premium Funding for 97 students (as of September 2016). Click here to see how we used this money and the impact of the funding.
