Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding:

At Uppingham Community College our aim is for all students to succeed regardless of background or circumstance.  We have high aspirations for all students both with their academic success and their success beyond the classroom.  We seek to ensure that all students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum with quality first teaching to help them succeed in their learning. This is enhanced by our curriculum enrichment opportunities available to all, with bespoke provision for Pupil Premium students. All of this is underpinned by an excellent pastoral support system within school geared to individual need and governed by our core values of respect, honesty and kindness.

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged students and close the gap between them and their peers.

“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM student, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students within their responsibility.” Source – DfE website

The pupil premium funding is used to maximise student potential through supporting quality-first teaching, additional opportunities and interventions which all have a positive impact on students’ progress, outcomes and personal development.  We aim to remove barriers to learning so that ALL groups of students make good progress, meeting age related expectations at each stage through school.

A Pupil Premium strategy is agreed as a 3-year plan but is reviewed annually by the governing body.  Our latest plan, for 2019-2022, can be found below. Our new strategy for 2022-2025 will be available in the Autumn Term.

A full parent guide for Pupil Premium students can also be found below.
