Pupil Premium and Year 7 Catch Up Funding

The Pupil Premium is a government initiative designed to target resources for those pupils considered to be from a disadvantaged background. The Pupil Premium money is provided to schools and academies for students aged 11 – 16 who fall into one or more of the categories listed below:

  • Students who have been entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever 6 FSM)
  • Students who have been looked after continuously for at least 6 months (CLA).
  • Students who have been looked after for 1 day or more; have been adopted from care or have left care under a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangement order.
  • Students who have a parent in the armed services or have had a parent/s in the armed services for the last four years. (Ever 4 Service Child)

The Government provides £935 per child and this money is to be used in narrowing the gap between the progress of pupils who are “socially disadvantaged”.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
