Additional Pupil Funding for the Courtyard
The Courtyard SLT and governors made an executive decision to allocate Additional Funding received by the school to a range of educational and social development areas to best benefit the pupils who were eligible for Free School Meals.
The aim of the strategic allocation of all additional funding (Pupil Premium and Recovery Premium) is to support the development and progress of all pupils whilst reducing the gap between the achievements of disadvantaged pupils and their peers. It is recognised that pupils with ASC and a complexity of other needs, have significant difficulty in accessing the curriculum and making progress. Any needs regarding social, emotional and mental health need to be acknowledged and supported in order for the young person to access their learning and achieve their potential.
In the 2022-23 financial year, schools will receive the following Pupil Premium funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years:
• £1,345 for students in reception year to year 6
• £985 for students in year 7 to year 11
Additional Recovery Premium funding and School-Led Tutoring funding is documented in the Additional Pupil Funding Report 2022-2023, which can be found be following this link - Additional Funding Report 2022-2023
