Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It was not technically ‘new money’ but replaced other funding streams to support disadvantaged pupils and inequalities between children who were eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Looked After Children (LAC), and members of Service families.
At the time of introduction only 27% of secondary school pupils eligible for FSM achieved five A*‐C GCSEs or equivalent, including English and Maths, compared with 54% for non FSM students.
Vale of York Academy is a true comprehensive school, serving pupils of all abilities and economic backgrounds, and we pride ourselves on ensuring that ‘every child really matters’ and work hard to meet the needs of all our pupils regardless of ability, disability, gender, ethnicity or religious affiliation. Vale of York is a caring school, and we want to use the pupil premium funding to improve both results and in turn the life chances of the young people we serve.
Reporting Expenditure as a School
From September 2012 Schools have had to publish key information about pupil premium online. The regulations require the online statement to include:
The amount of PP funding the school will receive in the current academic year.
Details of how it is intended that the allocation will be spent.
Details of how previous academic year’s allocation was spent.
The effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of the disadvantaged student who attract it.
School leaders also report regularly to school governors on resource allocation and the impact of pupil premium funding via the raising achievement committee.

So pleased to see that @YSJLangLing it's such an amazing thing to see something that started as a small project with only a few of us has grown from strength to strength with the support of fab staff and is continuing to have such a positive impact! Good luck to all involved. 🧡 twitter.com/ValeYork…
