Buxton Community School Pupil Premium Funding
Pupil Premium is a sum of money the school receives for each student who is either in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) or who has been in receipt of them in the past. We also receive money to support students from service families and those who are looked after outside of their families. Nationally, the statistics show that students from these groups tend to do less well than their peers in public examinations and so the aim of this money is to try to close that attainment gap.
At Buxton Community School we view the needs of all students as important and we strive to create the best opportunities and experiences for every single student at the school.
The projected Pupil Premium Grant income for 2021-22 is £241,000 and our Pupil Premium and Recovery Statement document for 2021/22 is detailed below.
