Pupil Premium is a fund provided by the Department for Education to enhance the education of students who are deemed to be from a disadvantaged background. It is provided for those students currently in receipt of free school meals or have been, at any point over the past 6 years (FSM6). Looked After Children (CLA) and Children with Parents in the Armed Forces are also eligible to Pupil Premium Funding.

We use the Pupil Premium to raise achievement, develop enrichment opportunities to develop cultural capital and to support individual learners needs.

At Carmel, we work wherever the need is greatest with an aim to “reverse delayed attainment, linguistic under-privilege and lack of early opportunity, so that children self- select (not self de-select) and accumulate advantage (not disadvantage) through life”.

We are guided by the research and the principles outlined by the EEF in ensuring we prioritise teaching and pedagogy to the most effective practice and include wider strategies such as mentoring alongside targeted intervention.
