Pupil Premium Strategy & Year 7 Catch Up

Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools for the purpose of raising the attainment of pupils the Government classes as disadvantaged. For example, students who have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) within the past six years, students who are or have been under Local Authority care (LAC) and children of Armed Forces personnel. Students attend Abbey Manor College for a variety of reasons, however the majority could be considered as disadvantaged in comparison to their peers in mainstream. Many have experienced barriers to learning leading to exclusion and are affected by a range of socioeconomic factors that affect their attainment in education. For this reason, the College uses the Pupil Premium to contribute to a range of support to help remove barriers and ensure students achieve. Abbey Manor College Pupil Premium allocation for the financial year 2019/20 is £94,903
