Pupil Premium

The government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011.  This grant, which is additional to main school funding, is given to schools by the government as a way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers. Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

At Austrey, our Pupil Premium spending is approved by the Head Teacher and the Local Academy Board, who then monitor its impact to ensure that it is spent effectively. 

Miss Griffiths, Deputy Head Teacher, is the pupil premium champion for the school and she is supported by Mrs Neild who is our Pupil Premium Governor. Mrs Eley, Headteacher is the Looked After Children lead. Together they work with the governors, staff, children and parents to ensure that our children receive the best from Austrey.

Every year we will publish a strategy which outlines the impact of the money spent in the previous year as well as our plans for the year ahead. Please click on the link below to access this years strategy document.
