At Patcham high School we believe that every students can achieve regardless of their economic background. The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to children from low-income families who are, or have been, eligible for free school meals (FSM), children of service personnel and children who have been looked-after (LAC). The grant is made available to support students who have received Free School Meals at some point in the previous six years. In addition, funding for students who have been in local authority care for more than six months is provided in a grant managed by the Virtual School. Students adopted from care also qualify for the Pupil Premium Grant. The aim of the Pupil Premium is to identify and implement strategies in order to increase social mobility and reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally. If you think you may qualify for support please contact David Rogers.
Our aims at Patcham High school are threefold:
- To support teaching and learning by providing additional support, resources and opportunities.
- To improve the attendance of students.
- To build cultural capital by providing opportunities that would otherwise be missed.
- In addition, students who have not achieved the expected standard in reading or maths will receive additional support from our catch-up coach.
