Previous Pupil Premium Report

Pupil Premium represents additional funding awarded to schools and academies to help raise the achievement of pupils who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and/or have been at any time during the last six years. Pupil Premium is also allocated to children in care who have been continuously looked after for six months.

Eligible students join the Academy with a wide range of barriers to their educational achievement. These include the quality of their prior learning and the standard of their literacy skills, the lack of belief they might have in their ability to be successful, and the limited support and opportunity that they have been afforded to date. At Ormiston Park Academy our ethos and overarching priority is to provide all pupils with every opportunity to reach their goals and achieve academically at the highest possible level. Each year the additional funding given to us is used in a multitude of different ways to support ensuring an equality of opportunity and outcomes for our students.

The Academy plans to continue using the Pupil Premium Grant to support a wide range of activities and projects throughout the new academic year. Our aim being to address the underlying inequalities between students disadvantaged by circumstance and their less disadvantaged peers.
