Pupil Premium

 

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated directly to the school and the school is afforded the autonomy to decide how it is best spent.

In 2016/17 Alleyne's Academy received an allocation of £80,000

In 2015/16 Alleyne's Academy received an allocation of £75,000

In 2014/15 Alleyne's Academy received a total of £87,062

In 2013/14 Alleyne's Academy recieved a total of £87,000
.
 

The impact for those pupils with an entitlement to free school meals and for looked after children at GCSE is as follows:
