What is Pupil Premium

Schools are allocated a sum of money to support their work with pupils who are entitled to and claim Free School Meals and those who are in local care. Secondary Schools are currently receiving an extra £935 per student for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years .  Currently at Sale High School 39% of students have been eligible for and claimed free school meals in the last 6 years.  A small number of children are in local care, for which the school receives extra funding.

We spend the pupil premium funding in line with our policy

Year 7 Catch-up premium

As well as Pupil premium, the Government has made a commitment to provide additional funding to schools for each year 7 pupil who did not achieve a scaled score of 100 in the Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests in reading and/or mathematics. At Sale High School we use the funding to deliver additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support in small groups, for those pupils that most need it.

All interventions are based on the student’s individual need. Here are just some of the intervention activities we offer to students:

  • One-to-one support
  • The Lexia reading programme
  • Readers club
  • Small group maths intervention
  • EAL tutorials
  • Support from external agencies
