Pupil Premium 

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to children from low income families who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals and Children Looked After by the Local Authority.  Eligibility for the Pupil Premium from 2012/13 was extended to students who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years.

Pupil Premium funding at Kinver High is focused on supporting children from low income families and other target groups (e.g. Service Children) to be fully engaged with school life, raise their aspirations and ensure they make at least similar progress to their peers to achieve their personal best.

The Pupil Premium funding is used to support the following initiatives at Kinver High to raise the achievements and aspirations of our students:

  • Forensic Reading programme

  • Supported school uniform

  • Accelerated Reading programme

  • Mentoring and support from our Inclusion and Pastoral team

  • 6th Form mentoring programme

  • SUMO

  • Support from our EWO

  • Outdoor education and work placement opportunities

  • Additional teaching in core subjects

  • Saturday, evening, and Holiday targeted teaching

  • Individual and smaller Literacy groups

  • Individual and smaller Numeracy groups 

  • Sport and Music opportunities

  • Support with travel

  • Support for revision residentials

  • Subscriptions for specialist services and resources 

"It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium allocated to schools per Free School Meal pupil is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility"
