Pupil Premium

In April 2010 the Government introduced the Pupil Premium to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals and others.  This additional funding is allocated to Queensbury Academy to spend on children from low-income families who were known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), and also to children who had been in Local Authority Care continuously for more than six months.

For the academic year 2016/7, Queensbury Academy has a total of 148 students in receipt of Pupil Premium funding and receives £900 for the majority of these students, and £1,900 for 6 students which gives a total of £145,860. This will continue to be used to support all students that meet the criteria for this funding as well as others needing additional support.   In accordance with the Academy’s development plan the funding will be distributed in the following way:
