Pupil Premium

The “pupil premium” is an amount of money provided to Holbrook in addition to the main school funding.  It is allocated based on the number of students on our roll who are eligible for free school meals (or who have been eligible for free school meals during the last six years), as well as any who are ‘looked after’ by the local authority.

We are committed to spending the money provided for disadvantaged students in an effective way, such that it has a direct impact on their.

Pupil Premium Policy 2017


During 2019-20 we received pupil premium funding of £63,110.

We used this money in three ways to increase the achievement and progress of these students:

  • Preparing students for adult life
  • Improving personal development, engagement, self-esteem, confidence and well being
  • Improving access to learning opportunities

Year 7 Catch up Funding 19/20

Please see attached our 19/20 funding summary.

Please note, funding for Year 7 catch up was not received in 20/21 due to the COVID catch up premium.

COVID-19 Catch-up Premium

Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.

As the catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), the grant will only be available for the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

Funding of £30,480 has been allocated to Holbrook and here is our 20-21 catch-up plan.
