Pupil Premium Strategy
Pupil Premium at South Wigston High School: Our Values & Ethos
Our vision is for all staff to share a collaborative responsibility for closing the gap between the achievements and results of our disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged students at South Wigston High School – and the national achievement standards of all students.
The pupil premium grant is funding to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in state-funded schools in England.
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. With this funding, we aim to raise aspirations and ensure that our disadvantaged students have the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Schools can use the funding as they see fit and we are responsible for the use of the additional funding to support students from low income families and other target groups.
The following groups are eligible for pupil premium:
- pupils who are recorded as eligible for free school meals, or have been recorded as eligible in the past 6 years, including eligible children of families who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF)
- children looked after by local authorities, referred to as looked-after children
- children previously looked after by a local authority or other state care, referred to as previously looked-after children
