The Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged students up to Year 11.
Eggbuckland Community College Academy Trust has a responsibility to ensure that Pupil Premium is used in an effective manner to support and accelerate the achievement of Pupil Premium students. We are held accountable for the spending of these monies by the DfE.
Allocation of funding is made according to the number of students entitled to free school meals within the last six years (known as Ever 6 FSM) and children in care (known as LAC) that attend the school in Years 7-11. There is also additional Pupil Premium funding (known as the Service Premium) for any student who has or has had within the last four years a parent in the armed forces (known as Ever 4 Service).
We were allocated £274500 for the academic year 2015/2016. These funds are in addition to the main school budget (the general annual grant).

There have been significant changes in accountability measures in 2016. Pupil Premium outcomes compared to ‘all’ were as follows:
