Pupil Premium

Schools now receive extra funding to support students in different circumstances and help them achieve. This is known as the ‘Pupil Premium’. Pupils who are entitled to Free School Meals and/or who are looked after should benefit from this. At The Carlton Academy we account for this funding to ensure that it is invested effectively to enhance our provision for these students.

Funding is used to support achievement through subsidising the following activities: 

  • ‘One to One' tutoring in Maths, English and Science
  • Period 6 lessons for targetted subjects
  • Assertive mentoring from academy staff
  • Targetted reading programmes
  • Smaller group sizes across the school
  • Student Support Centre and Pupil Achievement Centre
  • Subsidises for activities such as Music lessons and D of E provision
  • Funding external provision placements
  • Subsidising school visits and uniform purchases
  • ‘Easter-revision’ school
  • A programme of extra-curricular activities to develop skills in Sports, Drama, Music and ICT
  • Attendance and punctuality monitoring
