    Pupil Premium

    The pupil premium is additional funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

    In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, The Avenue School Special Needs Acadamy received the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

    • £1,300 for secondary-aged pupils
    • £935 for primary-aged pupils

    The school also received £1,900 for each pupil who:

    • has been looked after for 1 day or more
    • has been adopted from care
    • has left care under: a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangement order


    The impact of Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is evidenced by the growing confidence and self esteem in some groups of pupils in others it may be academic achievement. The overwhelming majority of this funding is used to address each individual's barrier to learning thereby facilitating learning and raising attainment by providing a range of ‘interventions’ that we are seeing as highly successful.

    Full details of the school's spending and the impact for last academic year can be found below along with it’s plans for the use of funds for the current academic year.
