The Corsham School is committed to provide an excellent education for all of its students. Pupil Premium funding is intended to provide extra support for groups of students who nationally do not achieve as well as others through living in disadvantaged situations.
The funding is received by schools to raise the achievement of those on Free School Meals (FSM); those who have received these in the last 6 years (FSM6); those who have a parent in the armed forces (Service Children); and those students in care or who have been in care (LAC).
At The Corsham School, the primary use of funding is to ensure that all students have access to the best teaching, resulting in the best outcomes and leading students on to their chosen pathways. We also recognise that whilst excellent teaching will close attainment gaps there are also social issues which need addressing.
Some funds are used to remove obstacles to participation in activities and access to opportunities as well as supporting emotional and well-being of all students.
