Churchmead School Pupil premium strategy statement 23/24

At Churchmead, we pride ourselves on providing an inclusive provision to every student. We are committed to raising the profile of Pupil Premium Students and uphold high expectations, irrespective of their background, personal circumstances or experiences prior to joining our school community.

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium provision is additional funding provided to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of lower income families and disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gap between their attainment and that of their peers.

Churchmead School receives funding for students eligible for free school meals, students whose parents are serving in the armed forces or students who are in care, adopted from care or ‘looked after’. 

Churchmead has a track record of ensuring this funding is used effectively to ensure our pupils make good progress.
