Meadowhead School strives to provide an outstanding education for all 11 to 18 year olds, ensuring that students aspire and are challenged to achieve academic success whilst supporting and developing individuals to prepare for the future.
The pupil premium is extra money paid to schools by the government to help disadvantaged children achieve more in education. It is given to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:
- registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
- have parents in the Armed Forces
- children adopted from care or who have left care.
The DfE states the grant may be spent in the following ways:
- for the purpose of the school i.e. for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school
- for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies
- on community facilities e.g. services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated.
