Pupil Premium is identified in the school budget for the purpose of narrowing or closing the gap between pupils who may not be attaining academically at the same level as their peers. The payment to Seven Hills is calculated on the number of students in receipt of Free School Meals or who are Looked After Children. Seven Hills has no attainment gap to narrow between Free School Meals and LAC children and non- Free School Meals and LAC children. The advice from the City Wide Learning Body is therefore to focus our budget towards providing “Social, sporting, cultural, communication and employability or transition opportunities”.
In 2019/20 the school received £65,450 Pupil Premium funding for 70 pupils, representing 56% of the population from Y7-11. This money is used to ensure that students receive a rich and varied curriculum which aims to help them develop core learning skills but also helps them to develop holistically to become caring, aware, safe and responsible citizens. The initial focus is on individual progress and attainment and ensuring that each child is making expected or above expected progress.
