Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding provided by the Department of Education to bridge the attainment gap for socially-economically deprived pupils.  This includes Ever 6 pupils and those who have received free school meals in the last 6 years.

Schools are allocated Pupil Premium grant on a financial year basis rather than an academic year.  The 2016-17 allocation for Emslie Morgan Academy was £73,068. This figure is projected to rise for the 2017-18 year by 6%.

The grant is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years. As a consequence of their financial circumstances the school receives additional grant to support the pupils in their learning. This is referred to as the 'Ever 6' model.

The school receives £935 for every eligible 'Ever 6' pupil.

Pupil Premium is used to provide additional tuition, educational materials and resources to support achievement for these pupils. It is also used to subsidise uniform, revision programmes, educational visits, activities and special projects to maximise the potential of our disadvantaged pupils.
