Pupil Premium Funding at Southgate School

Pupil Premium Strategy 2021-22

This statement details our school’s use of pupil premium (and recovery premium for the 2021 to 2022 academic year) funding to help improve the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils.

It outlines our pupil premium strategy, how we intend to spend the funding in this academic year and the effect that last year’s spending of pupil premium had within our school.

The aim of Pupil Premium is to raise the attainment of eligible pupils, close any identified gaps in areas between these pupils and pupils not eligible, and help them to make as good or even better progress than pupils who are not eligible.

In the October 2020 census, a total of 53.42% of pupils on roll at Southgate School were eligible for all Pupil Premiums.  47.83% pupils were eligible for the ever-6 FSM deprivation Pupil Premium. 5.59% pupils were eligible for Children Looked After Pupil Premium and 5.59% pupils were eligible for Post-Children Looked After Pupil Premium.
