Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is a grant given to schools for each child who currently claims free school meals, or who has done so in the past. 

Research has shown that children who receive free school meals do not attain as highly as other children in school. The government provides the Pupil Premium grant to enable schools to commission/allocate additional support to ensure that they do. This support can be provided in a short burst, or over a longer time period, as required. It may take the form of 1-1 or small group teaching and may be an evidence based intervention. It can also take the form of additional resources, enrichment or access to opportunities that enhance learning and or aspiration.

Ark Boulton Academy, like all Ark academies, receives pupil premium in respect of our most disadvantaged pupils. Each academy plans their academic support and intervention according to the needs of their individual students and states how the support is used on their school website.
