At Bar Hill school we take our pupil premium expenditure very seriously with the understanding that the extra money we receive is intended to transform the life chances of our children. Our underlying principle for pupil premium spending is to ensure that the money spent pushes the children towards achieving at least the minimum national GCSE expectation (currently 5 C grades including English and Maths along with achievement of the EBac). Our determination, effort and expenditure for these children, however, doesn’t stop until we secure Mastery in all subjects.
Our pupil premium grant for the academic year 2016/2017 was: £37,700
Our pupil premium expenditure total for the academic year 2015/2016 was: £29,962 with a carry forward from the previous academic year and the new financial year of £10,365 making the total expenditure: £40,327
