Frequently asked Questions
What if family circumstances change?
The school’s list of eligible pupils is regularly updated throughout the year as family circumstances change. Pupil Premium information is shared confidentially with teaching staff so that they can support students appropriately in the classroom. Pupil Premium funding is used flexibly to respond to the needs of our students – either individually or in groups.
Financial hardship not covered by the PPG
As part of our inclusive ethos we are committed to helping all of our students to fulfil their potential, regardless of circumstances. We therefore extend help and support, where appropriate, to those students who are not eligible for the PPG but where known financial hardship exists. Click here for more details about how to apply.
What happens after Year 11?
Where appropriate we continue to provide support to Sixth Form students who were previously eligible for the Pupil Premium through the 16-19 Bursary scheme. We continue to monitor the progress of PPG students even after they start their Sixth Form studies.
