Thorpepark is located in an area of high social deprivation where 96.7% of our children live in the 10% most disadvantaged homes nationally.
Almost 46.9% of children are regarded as ‘Ever6’ (ie have received free school meals in the past 6 years.) As a result Thorpepark receives a significant amount of Pupil Premium funding.
This means that resources and actions put place as a result of the Pupil Premium funding has an impact on all pupils, a significant number of which come from low income and disadvantaged backgrounds.
We are mindful of the importance of not confusing entitlement with ability as the Pupil Premium is an entitlement to ensure that all eligible children make the progress and reach the standards they are capable of.
The report below informs parents and carers of how much Pupil Premium was received by the school for 2017-18, how it was spent and the impact it had on pupils’ achievement. The report also explains how the school intents to allocate the pupil premium for 2018-2019.
