Pupil Premium Strategy Statement
Key Aims: At Leasowes High School we aim to allow all students the opportunity to have access to correct support, guidance and curriculum in order to narrow the disadvantage gap and increase achievement.
Mrs N Wills (Assistant Headteacher), Ms J Atherton (Assistant Headteacher), Ms D Stevens (Maths Mentor) and Mr H Smith (Associated Senior Leader). The Government has allocated a specific pupil premium grant to every school. In 2017/18 Leasowes received a grant of £275,850. In 2018/19 the school will receive a total of £258,155. Deprivation Pupil Premium is an amount of £935 per pupil premium student. Funding has been allocated for 282 students across all year groups for 2018/19. Detail of the impact of this spending can be found on the below Pupil Premium Strategy Statement.
This funding is in addition to our main school budget and is allocated within objectives as below:
- To support disadvantaged students with curriculum enrichment activities.
