Diminishing the difference across the curriculum
Our aim is to ensure that all pupil premium pupils are able to attain as well as those not eligible across the curriculum. This is measured both against their peers and national figures. With this aim subject leaders measure progress and attainment in their subjects and identify barriers to address these in their action plans. Pupil premium funding can be requested to support the needs of the action plans and the impact is measured.
In 2021-2022 we will continue to direct our actions to support the three principles of the RADY approach.
1 – Raising awareness of the pupils and barriers for learning in all subjects.
2- Raising expectations of pupil attainment and setting accelerated targets for pupils in order to diminish differences in attainment.
3 – Raising aspirations of pupils through building cultural capital.
Who monitors spending of the Pupil Premium at Charnwood?
All spending is closely monitored by our Local Academy Council and Principal Mrs Katie Stanley.
Pupil Premium Leader: Mrs Cheryl Nowell
Governor: Mr Jim Raban
Last Update: The Governor was last updated on Pupil Premium attainment through the autumn review and this was presented in the last LAC meeting of November 2021.
Next Pupil Premium Review meeting: A meeting to review upcoming spending will be held in Spring 2022.
Even though your child is now automatically entitled to a free school meal for their first three years at school (Reception to Year 2), registering for income assessed free school meals could provide the school with extra money to be spent on raising achievement for all our pupils.

What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is a Government funded finance stream that is aimed to support the improvement of educational outcomes for groups of disadvantaged children e.g. those in receipt of Free School Meals currently or during the last 6 years ( EVER 6), Service children and Looked After Children.
How should it be spent?
The grant may be spent in the following ways:
- For the purposes of the school i.e. for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school.
- For the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies.
- On community facilities e.g. services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated
The grant does not have to be completely spent by schools in the financial year beginning 1 April; some or all of it may be carried forward to future financial years.
