Pupil Premium

Overview

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and paid by a means of a specific grant based on school census figures for students who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as Ever 6 FSM). For looked after children, the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data return.

A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these students.

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and will be used by Amherst School to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the students who need it most to support and improve their learning.

Please read our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement below for further information. 

Although there was no 2021 Year 6 SATs tests we did complete internal SATs with Year 6 during May 2021 using the 2019 paper. The performance of our Year 6 Pupil Premium children can be seen in the table below.
